Outlook 2017

Australia's premier information and networking forum for the agriculture sector, the ABARES Outlook 2017 conference will be help on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 March in Canberra. The theme is Innovation in agriculture – capturing the opportunities. While the Australian agriculture sector is highly innovative, the drivers of change are accelerating. Global markets are expanding, consumer preferences are diversifying and the internet’s increasing connectivity is generating data about everything. Businesses will need to adapt and utilise new operating models, markets, technologies and information to grow and prosper.

Be part of the conversation – network with speakers and delegates; hear from industry leading speakers and access the latest forecasts and industry analysis to underpin your strategic planning.
