Hort Connections 2020 reveals theme and first speakerNews
Hort Connections, this year held in Brisbane on 15-17 June, has announced its conference theme will be “Sustaining the Future of Fresh”. The goal of this theme is to explore the many ways we as an industry can grow more with less, whether it be through technology, labour solutions, or just general financial and environmental sustainability.
As part of the registration launch, Ausveg and PMA A-NZ announced businesswoman and best-selling author, Janine Allis, as the first confirmed speaker. Ms Allis is the founder of Boost Juice, executive director of Retail Zoo and has appeared on Channel Ten’s Shark Tank and Australian Survivor 2019.
In 2019 the event boasted about 3500 delegates from domestic and international horticulture, with visitors from more than 30 countries. Attendee analysis indicates a diverse-cross-section of the produce industry is covered, with those identifying as a grower/packer/processor forming the largest segment.
