APAL joins the 2016 National Horticulture Convention

APAL is once again joining AUSVEG, and now the Central Markets Association of Australia in partnership with Fresh Markets Australia (CMAA-FMA), to host the National Horticulture Convention that will be held 23-25 June 2016 on the Gold Coast.

APAL’s involvement in the 2015 National Horticulture Convention was successful with more than 150 attendees from the apple and pear industry.

Feedback showed that 84 per cent of APAL delegates ranked apple and pear industry activities as very good to excellent, with more than 90 per cent saying they would attend again.

“We’re excited to be part of the growing National Horticulture Convention that offers our industry some great focused activities of specific relevance to their business, but also many relevant bigger picture activities,” says APAL CEO John Dollisson.

“We learnt a lot from our involvement in the 2015 National Horticulture Convention and have identified a range of ways we can improve our participation even more for apple and pear delegates in 2016.

“I am looking forward to attending in 2016 and I hope to see lots of apple and pear growers and their staff and associates there.”

AUSVEG is also in discussions with other industry groups to come on board for the 2016 Convention to help further unite Australian horticulture.

Registration for the HortCon 2016 Trade Show is now open – download the Exhibitor Registration Brochure to secure a booth.
