Horticulture primed for growth

Growers and industry members from the fresh produce industry will kick-off Hort Connections 2023, the biggest event in Australian horticulture, on Monday 5 June at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Hort Connections 2023 will explore the theme of Knowledge for Growth to ensure the industry is primed to take advantage of the next generation of research, technology and business innovation to grow the production and value of the horticulture industry. The event will cater to all members of the horticulture industry, ranging from primary producers to retailers and the entire supply chain. It is an opportunity for growers and industry members to come together in one central location to build their knowledge and networks, and find out new ways to improve the productivity and profitability of their businesses. “Hort Connections is a highlight in the calendar for many in the industry, particularly for the many growers who attend the event to see the latest innovations and technologies that are available to make their businesses more productive and profitable,” said AUSVEG National Marketing Manager Nathan McIntyre. “Delegates will learn from the industry’s leaders during a range of plenary and industry-focused speaker sessions. They will also learn about the innovations that are set to change the face of Australian horticulture from the sector’s leading agribusinesses at the sold-out Trade Show, which features over 200 exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, products and services to Australian fruit and vegetable growers. “The Hort Connections 2023 conference will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ that incorporates unparalleled networking opportunities for everyone in the horticulture supply chain, a trade show showcasing leading local and global businesses, and world-class speakers. There is still time to register if you haven’t already.”

Hort Connections is a joint initiative between AUSVEG and the International Fresh Produce Association Australia New Zealand (IFPA A-NZ). These annual events have rapidly become a central fixture in the Australian and New Zealand horticulture calendar, with over 3,000 delegates from all sectors of the horticulture industry attending Hort Connections 2022 and more than 200 commercial and not-for-profit businesses, government departments and industry organisations partnering in the event. Hort Connections 2023 is being supported by Hort Innovation – Principal Convention Partner – as well as Major Partners Coles, Nutrien Ag Solutions, Corteva Agriscience, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, and Syngenta.
