The countdown to Hort Connections 2018 is on

Time is running out to register for Hort Connections 2018, which will take place at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 18–20 June.

The event will bring together over 3000 local and international delegates who will have the opportunity to network with peers and learn from industry leaders from every sector of the horticulture industry.

Hort Connections is a joint initiative between AUSVEG and the Produce Marketing Association Australia-New Zealand (PMA A-NZ), and this year’s theme is halving waste and doubling productivity by 2030.

“Delegates will hear from thought-provoking and inspiring speakers during a range of plenary and industry-focused speaker sessions, as well as explore the Hort Connections Trade Show, which is already at full capacity,” said Hort Connections spokesperson Nathan McIntyre.

The event includes a variety of presentations and expert panels covering topics from boosting on-farm productivity, to future food and consumer trends, and the latest updates on agricultural technology and industry issues.

Attendees can also hear keynotes from thought leaders such as National Farmers’ Federation President Fiona Simson, global futurist Chris Riddell and leading international food industry leader Drew Yancey.

Other key events for Hort Connections 2018 include: vegetable levy-funded presentations from Major Sponsor Hort Innovation on ‘Future Food Trends: What is the next kale boom’ and ‘How can I make better decisions using data’; the PMA A-NZ Fresh Perspectives and Women in Horticulture event and networking session; and the National Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner.

For those still interested in attending any of the three days, McIntyre reassures: “It’s not too late to sign up for the event. If you haven’t already registered, have a look at the event program at and see why Hort Connections 2018 will be the biggest event for the Australian horticulture industry.”
