Defence Science Institute
and DST Group - Innovation Pitchfest


Smart Australian companies and research centres exhibiting at Pacific 2015 will get a chance to sell their new ideas, technologies and products to the world.

At the Pacific 2015 Innovation Showcase scientists and researchers from DST Group and Australian universities, research agencies, maritime and defence companies will pitch their work to potential partners and customers.

Organised by Maritime Australia Limited, which runs the Pacific 2015 International Maritime Exposition, DST Group, the Defence Science Institute (DSI) and Defence SA, the Showcase will be centred on a 70-seat Innovation Theatrette situated in Exhibition Hall 3.

During each of the three Trade Days at Pacific 2015 DST Group, Australia’s universities and Australian maritime and defence companies will hold 30-minute ‘Pitchfests’ in the Theatrette . Each session will see several innovators deliver a 3-minute ‘pitch’ in rapid succession to an audience of potential industry and research partners. This program was pioneered by DST Group at Pacific 2015’s sister event, the Land Forces 2014 Exposition, held in Brisbane last September.

The Innovation Theatrette will also host a showcase of the shortlisted finalists for the Maritime Australia Limited Industry Innovation Awards, which will be presented there by its Chairman, Vice Admiral Chris Ritchie AO (retired), during Pacific 2015.
