The Innovations Pitch Fest is back in 2024, providing a showcase opportunity for the waste and recycling industry’s latest innovative solutions presented by the individuals and companies leading them. This is your chance as a visitor to be privy to waste solutions and products before they even hit-the market, giving you the upper hand to be more competitive in the rapidly growing waste sector.

Judged by a panel of industry experts, the Innovation Pitch Fest will take place in Seminar Theatre 1 on the show floor featuring a line-up of our 2024 Innovation Zone exhibitors. Directly after the pitch, our judges will provide instant feedback on a number of criteria, including consumer need, innovation, point of difference, go-to market strategy and product sustainability.

The Pitch Process


The Pitch Fest takes place during the AWRE expo. Finalists will deliver their pitches live on stage to both visitors and the judging panel. Each presentation will last for 5 minutes, totaling 16 sessions. Following the presentations, our esteemed panel of judges will convene to deliberate before returning to offer feedback and announce the winner.

Pitch time!

Each entrant will be judged based on various criteria to our visitor audience of waste professionals, including the impacts of innovation, originality, practicality, sustainability and circular principles, viability, and future thinking.


The prize package comprises a fully subsidized 9m² stand at the next AWRE, actionable insights from our judges, and additional benefits to be revealed. The winner will also be showcased in a blog on the AWRE website and across AWRE's social media channels. *Terms and conditions apply.
