For the first time, the conference will include an International Expo, organised by our partner Point Carbon, providing the opportunity for climate change and carbon market service providers to highlight their products and services.

The Victorian Government is Foundation Sponsor and Host of the event which will be held in the new six-star Green Star rated Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Organising support is provided by partners in five countries. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Tailored for a business audience, the conference represents a unique opportunity for an interchange of ideas between New Zealand and Australian business leaders and policy makers in the run-up to Copenhagen.
