Hort Connections Retail Tour: The Art of the Retail Experience

18 June 2018

Join PMA A-NZ on the Hort Connections Tour of Brisbane’s Finest Retail Spaces

As part of this year’s Hort Connections conference program, Produce Marketing Association Australia-New Zealand (PMA A-NZ) is offering a highly valuable and informative retail tour. This year’s tour titled The Art of the Retail Experience is a great way to experience truly innovative concepts in fresh produce retailing. Departing from the Brisbane Convention Centre on Monday 18 June at 12.30pm, this tour will visit a range of retail facilities of various sizes and functions.


The first of these retail stores is the PMA A-NZ member and growing consumer favourite – ALDI. ALDI have made some big changes in the fresh produce space in recent time. On this tour we’ll be given a run through of those changes, as well as a look at how the chain hopes to maintain its meteoric rise in popularity. 

Joining ALDI on the line-up is The Standard Market Company. Known throughout Brisbane as one of the city’s slickest high-end retailers, TSMC have set a new benchmark for the modern in-store experience as they look to ‘raise your expectation of what a food market should be’. Sourcing the finest fresh produce from both local international producers, whether they be heritage or organic growers, artisan butchers and bakers, seasonal specialists gourmet importers or culinary craftspeople – TSMC is one inspiring enterprise.

The final tour destination is yet to be announced, but we assure you one you won’t want to miss – so watch this space and get in quick before the bus fills up.

At 4.30pm the bus will return you to the Brisbane Convention Centre where you can visit the Hort Connections exhibition or check out the afternoon concurrent conference sessions.


Cost: $100 per person (inclusive of GST)
Inclusions:  Includes a packed lunch, travel, knowledgeable tour guides, tastings and coffee or tea
Time: 12.30pm - 4.30pm


Don’t forget to bring your business cards with you – you never know who you’ll meet along the way.

Hort Connections runs from 18-20 June at the Brisbane Convention Centre. For more information on the conference visit the website;
