National Fruit Fly Symposium

Conferences & Tradeshows

The National Fruit Fly Symposium will take stock of progress against the National Fruit Fly Strategy to date and aims to build a collective view of future opportunities. The two-day symposium, with the theme ‘The view over the horizon’, will provide an opportunity to both listen, engage and contribute to our collective fruit fly future.

The National Fruit Fly Council (NFFC) will host the symposium from 20–21 July 2023 at the National Wine Centre in Adelaide, South Australia.

Day 1 will explore the fruit fly system and the all-important trade implications and opportunities. Day 2 will comprise a series of workshops around issues including area wide management and SIT, systems-based approaches, as well as extension and engagement, including social research. The workshops are designed to provide an update on past and current work, draw on successful and practical approaches, look at case studies both locally and internationally, and explore future opportunities and priorities to enable us to chart a path and identify the role of each component within the system.

In the lead up to the National Fruit Fly Symposium, the National Fruit Fly Council will also host a Think Tank webinar series covering strategic priority issues including market access, SIT and policy, area wide management, and fruit fly systems.
