After a successful event in Brisbane in June 2021, AUSVEG and PMA Australia-New Zealand (PMA A-NZ) will once again deliver Hort Connections, the premier event in the Australian fresh produce industry.

Hort Connections 2022 will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 6–8 June, and we cannot wait to welcome delegates from all over Australia to learn, network and celebrate the achievements of the industry over the last year,” says AUSVEG national marketing manager Nathan McIntyre.

“Given the event in 2021 was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the organising committee has made a number of changes to the program for Hort Connections 2022 to ensure that delegates and exhibitors have the most worthwhile, informative and entertaining experience.”

Trade Show

Mr McIntrye said the Hort Connections Trade Show is a highlight for all delegates who can speak directly with the leading agribusiness suppliers in horticulture and learn about the latest services and innovations that they can adopt in their businesses.

“The Hort Connections 2022 Trade Show will be getting a ‘facelift’ to give delegates and exhibitors a new, refreshed experience.

“The new-look Trade Show will feature a newly designed floor plan, brand-new booth designs, more networking lounges and resting areas, as well as a growing Trade Show speaker program on Tuesday 7 June.

“Like the event in 2021, there will be a dedicated space in the program on the Tuesday to allow attendees enough time to walk around and grow their connections and allow exhibitors to plan for the expected rush of delegates who are looking to grow their businesses through new services, innovations and technologies.

“The Trade Show is always a hive of activity and is a necessity for companies to exhibit their cutting-edge products, supply-chain solutions, technological innovations and horticultural support for growers and industry stakeholders.

“With over 60 per cent of trade show booths sold six months out from the event, we recommend getting in quickly to book your spot,” Mr McIntyre said.

Booth registration details can be found online. For more information, contact AUSVEG.

Program

“The official opening of Hort Connections will take place on Monday 6 June, with the return of the Welcome Reception to the program, which will allow delegates to grab some food and drinks and network with peers and key suppliers through the Trade Show.

“Hort Connections delegates will also be able to take part in tours of key farms and industry sites. More details will be released for the Farm Tours shortly,” Mr McIntyre said.

The Hort Connections organising committee is keen to ensure that the event’s program is contemporary and meets the needs of the industry’s producers and suppliers.

To ensure the Hort Connections 2022 program is fit-for-purpose, a reference group of key horticulture stakeholders and producers has convened to assist with the event planning and programming to ensure content is relevant to the current industry climate.

Pandemic response

The Hort Connections team is continuing to work with people on-the-ground at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and in the wider Brisbane community to ensure all safety measures and precautions are followed by event staff and attendees so that the experience for exhibitors and delegates is safe and enjoyable.
