Site Tours

We were very fortunate to have these facilities opened up to us for EDGE23 and hope to be able to offer some evern mroe incredible unique experiences in 2024! 
Matrix Composites and Engineering specialise in designing, engineering, and manufacturing composite and advanced material technology. They have over 20 years experience and have cemented themselves as an industry leader in syntactic foam solutions and subsea bouyancy.

Their head office is based in Henderson and is home to Australia's largest composite manufacturing facilty. This tour will provide a guided walk around the facility which boasts a large R&D office run by scientists and material engineers, hyperbaric testing chamber, rotomoulding and a range of technologies applicable to many ocean industries.

See what participants said about the 2022 Edge Forum 
Inspiring and encouraging to see that there are innovation projects being implemented to tackle climate change, and achievable within the timeframe. Good to get insight into concrete case studies and not just big picture talks
One top benefit:
Networking with Blue Economy participants and their expertise relevant to my own venture. Technical insights into future fuel projects otherwise hard to come by
The 'fishbowl' setting and facilitation got participants involved in the discussions, which was excellent
