International CleanUp Conference 2019


Across the two conferences the biggest issues facing the remediation community will be completely addressed. The program brings together research and industry best practice, drawing on experience from Australian and international markets. More than 700 delegates are expected to converge on the Adelaide Convention Centre, coming from all relevant areas of government, research and industry. Now in its eighth year, this highly respected, not-to-be-missed conference is an excellent opportunity to share expertise and make connections – as well as provide exposure to your organisation as a sponsor or exhibitor – before, during and after the event.

CRC CARE leads international CleanUp Conference series that provide a global forum to discuss all aspects of contaminated site assessment, management and remediation. The Organising Committee is preparing outstanding scientific and educational programs across the suite of conferences. The program blends research and industry best practice, drawing on experience from Australian and international markets.

With an expected attendance of over 1500 delegates across all related fields and industries, the conference presents an excellent opportunity to share expertise and make connections before, during and after the event.

Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia. Adelaide had an estimated resident population of over 1,400,000. Adelaide is home to more than 75 percent of the South Australian population, making it the most centralised population of any state in Australia.

The Organising Committee is pleased to have secured the Convention Centre in the heart of Adelaide City, as the host venue for the event. The conference venue offers an environment that enables attendees to easily navigate the tightly paced program, engage with exhibitors, and share ideas and information. The conference program will also feature pre-conference training workshops and post conference tours.

Networking can occur through a full complement of lunches, receptions and other meals being served during program breaks. After the sessions conclude each evening, there will be poster sessions and networking drinks.

We believe this conference will be a highly rewarding educational and networking experience for all. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and to contribute to the success of this special event.

We look forward to seeing you at our Cleanup events.
