Pitching Competitions

At our major industry conferences, the ARA includes a young professionals pitching competition as part of the agenda to engage the younger generation and hear their innovative ideas.

Abstracts are sought from individuals 30 years and under that outline their innovative concept for the industry. A shortlist, typically five are then selected to ‘pitch’ their concept as part of the ‘Young Professionals Pitching Competition’ during the conference. Each of the finalists ‘pitch’ to the audience and an industry judging panel who ask questions of each presenter to delve a little deeper into their proposal. The audience and judging panel then vote on each pitch and the winner is announced at the Conference dinner.

All finalists receive domestic flights to the conference and a ticket to attend the conference and dinner.
