Pullman Cairns International Hotel from May 12 to 14. Some 400 delegates are expected to attend.
This year's Australian Banana Industry Congress is to be held at the Cairns Convention Centre and the Pullman Cairns International Hotel from May 12 to 14. Some 400 delegates are expected to attend.
The event is held every two years’ its organisers have committed to presenting a program that suits all attendees.
Topics to be covered include:
- domestic and global marketing
- business growth
- succession planning
- improving efficiencies on farm
Besides expert speakers, growers will also take the stage to share innovations with their peers. Congress chair and Lakeland grower Paul Inderbitzin said any grower attending is looking for a program that is informative, motivational and gives them something to take back and apply on farm.
"The program that has been formulated for 2021 ticks every one of these boxes," Inderbitzin said.
The plenary sessions will be held at the revamped Cairns Convention Centre, with the nearby Pullman International Hotel selected to accommodate guests and social functions.
