Hort Connections coming up
IN LESS than three weeks Hort Connections 2018 will bring together the horticulture industry’s most influential players and expert thought leaders for an expansive three-day trade show and conference.
Growcom is once again proud to take part as a co-host for this year’s conference, in association with AUSVEG and PMA Australia-New Zealand, at the Brisbane Convention Centre from June 18–20.
Following on from last year’s event in Adelaide, Hort Connections 2018 promises to be the most influential space for networking, education and business for the entire fresh produce supply chain.
Growcom will have its own booth at the trade show where industry members can catch up with our innovation coach, export facilitator, agricultural workforce co-ordinator and Hort360 field staff. There will also be a Fair Farms hub where growers can find out about Fair Work compliance and employment procedures.
The Fair Farms team will demonstrate the Hort360 workplace relations module, explain how the Fair Farms certification process works, and discuss any issues or concerns growers might have.
An industry update regarding progress towards the Fair Farms certification scheme will also be held on June 20 in the trade show hall. This is an opportunity for all industry members to hear about plans for the scheme and how it will be piloted during 2018 into the future.
Our very own chief advocate, Rachel Mackenzie, has also been nominated for a Women in Horticulture award. The award celebrates female industry members who have demonstrated outstanding ability and success in their chosen field. We congratulate Rachel on her nomination and encourage our growers not to miss the awards ceremony at the Hort Connections Gala Dinner on June 20.
For a one-stop-shop on all things horticulture, Hort Connections 2018 is the place to be.
NOMINEE: Growcom’s Rachel Mackenzie.
