Brisbane, Australia | Hort Connections 2018

18 - 20 June 2018

PMA A-NZ and AUSVEG are pleased to announce the official opening of Hort Connections 2018 to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 18 - 20 June.

The event will be co-hosted alongside a range of horticulture industry bodies including Australian Organic, Onions Australia, the Australian Horticultural Exporters' and Importers' Association, Growcom and Apple and Pear Australia Limited with a number of other prominent industry groups set to join in Australia's largest Horticulture event. 

The program is set to be released early in the new year but will be streamlined to allow easy access to the speaker sessions and Trade Show for exhibitors and delegates alike.
Keep an eye on the website as more content becomes available. 

Delegate registrations are now open for Hort Connections 2018. Next year’s event will build on the success of Hort Connections 2017, which resulted in nearly 2,500 members of the local and international supply chain coming together for the biggest and most comprehensive event in the history of Australian and New Zealand horticulture. 







Hort Connections 2017 was one of the most successful events on the industry calendar, and included:

  • Just under 2,500 delegates from the local and international horticulture industry (including visitors from over 15 countries).
  • Over 1,200 attendees at the Hort Connections Gala Dinner – the biggest in Australian horticulture.
  • Trade Show showcasing 148 local and global supply chain companies.
  • Over 80 world class speaker sessions, research presentations and panel discussions.

Already, strong enquiry from new exhibitors means that Hort Connections 2018 will be even bigger again, and is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for industry to come together in one central location, network with peers from many areas of the horticulture supply chain and learn about the latest developments taking place in their industry over three informative days of speaker sessions, research presentations and panel discussions.

“Last year’s speaker sessions offered content that was relevant to every sector of the supply chain – and this year’s event will be no different. These sessions will run in conjunction with the Trade Show, where delegates will be able to visit more exhibitors showcasing the industry’s latest innovations and service offerings under the one roof than anywhere else in the fresh produce and horticulture industry" said Darren Keating, CEO, PMA A-NZ. 

“The event will also include a range of networking events that will ensure Hort Connections is once again the most influential event for networking, education and business for the entire Australasian fresh produce industry.”
