This year, the innovation showcase has been refreshed in order to celebrate any and all new ways of thinking or doing, that are aimed at improving stormwater outcomes across Aotearoa.

The Stormwater committee invite you to present your innovative project, process or idea to a wide audience of stormwater professionals at the conference Innovation Awards session.  Your presentation will be no more than 5 minutes long, followed by up to 2 minutes of quick-fire questions from the panel of judges.

At the end of the presentations the judges and audience will cast votes for the Innovation which is judged to have the largest positive impact on the stormwater industry, best aligns with the conference themes, or is just simply the coolest.

The event is open to public and private organisations, including Local Authorities, research companies, academia, industry, businesses, contracts, consultancies, and individuals.

Essential Requirements:

  • The entry must involve a new technology, application, programme, service, or process aimed at improving stormwater outcomes across Aotearoa.
  • At least one presenter must be available to attend the presentation, being held at the Stormwater Conference & Expo 2023
  • Entries/entrants must be prepared to provide documentation to validate any claims that are made concerning the intellectual property underlying their business plans, including any claims concerning the licensing of Third-Party IP.
