Big hort conference agenda

Written by  Pam Tipa

The programme for Hort Connections 2019 has been released for the 3200 people expected at the ‘Growing our food future’ conference in Australia in late June.

Hort Connections 2019 is the premiere event in the Australian horticulture industry, encompassing the vegetable, fruit, nut, cut floral and nursery sectors. 

The conference, a joint effort by AUSVEG and the Produce Marketing Association Australia-New Zealand (PMA A-NZ), will run from June 24-26 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. It welcomes all members of NZ’s horticulture industry, from primary producers to retailers and the entire supply chain. 

“Over 100 NZ delegates and exhibitors have already registered for Hort Connections 2019, paving the way for... a strong trans-Tasman partnership across the entire supply chain,” spokesman Nathan McIntrye says.

“Alongside trade show exhibitors from NZ, United Fresh has also come onboard as an industry partner to share their experience in supporting and promoting the fresh produce industry.”

Key events will cover topics including onfarm productivity, agricultural innovations on the horizon and industry issues affecting the supply chain and consumers. A National Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner will acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of the industry’s leaders.

“Hort Connections 2019 is set to build on the success of previous events to bring even more value to the horticulture industry in Australia and New Zealand,” McIntyre says.
