Description

INNOVATORS creating VALUE from waste and those supporting the creation of the Waste=Feedstock ecosystem are invited to the Inaugural Upcycler Gathering for a one day summit designed to INSPIRE, INVIGORATE, and create lasting IMPACT.

Join us to lay the foundation for a formal Upcyclers Industry Association.

Come ready to:

  • Engage with other industry leaders, policy makers & material suppliers

  • Learn strategies to scale your business / Opportunities to utilize your "waste" AND policy incentives

  • Brainstorm on shared challenges and how to scale the waste = resource ecosystem

  • Assess your material impact and GHG reductions

Background:

The Upcycling community is a critical component in the development of a circular and sustainable economy. This industry presents an enormous opportunity to address growing waste and consumption trends while building high value businesses. Due to the advent of China and much of SE Asia's secondary materials market closure, the need to support domestic demand for secondary material presents a great opportunity to invest in local economic development as well as meet zero waste and carbon targets. The goal of this event is to support the development of the Upcycler ecosystem to affect even greater impact.

FAQs:

Why is there tiered ticket pricing?

The pricing is tiered in order to ensure that all innovators are able to attend regardless of what stage their business may be at. This is a trust based system and the goal is to cover costs while allowing for a diversity of attendees ranging from pre-revenue stage businesses to established brands. We believe that a mix of participants will ensure more creativity and opportunities for learning.
