Advisory Panel

In developing this inaugural event we are keen to work with key stakeholders from a range of agrifood sectors to ensure we are concentrating on the most relevant and timely topics for discussion and engaging the best possible presenters.

Our intention in pulling together an advisory panel is to engage sector leaders to help steer the focus of our event content towards a world class multi-streamed conference, exhibition, and business to business meeting place satisfying the most pressing needs of Australian agribusiness.
