The TRENd Pitchfest has been designed to stimulate highly innovative, well communicated and industry relevant tourism research by UTAS researchers, that will:

  • enhance the tourism research output from UTAS researchers;
  • be of relevance to the Tasmanian and/ or broader tourism industry; and
  • encourage new collaborative research projects between researchers at UTAS and tourism industry partners.

Teams of UTAS researchers will pitch their research ideas in a 5 minute presentation. On the evening 2 teams will be selected and granted $6000 to undertake their research. As an audience member you will be able to vote, along with a panel made up of representatives from UTAS and the Tourism Industry.

Light refreshments available.
