Outlook 2019

Outlook 2019 - we invite you to contribute

ABARES is convening the Outlook 2019 conference - the agriculture sector’s premier information and networking event. The program and participants will combine to provide something that no other event can offer -a unique combination of public and private sector perspectives, and the latest agricultural analysis and forecasts underpinned by ABARES commodity analysis and long term data sets.

Outlook 2019 will attract delegates from a range of sectors, reflecting the cross sectoral environment of agriculture - all levels of government, banking and finance, primary production, industry associations, tertiary education, research and innovation organisations, and regional development. The two day conference program will be complemented by the conference dinner, trade stand exhibition, and numerous networking opportunities.

If you would like to recommend sessions or speakers, explore partnership opportunities and the trade stand exhibition or any other aspect, please contact us at Conferences.


The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) is the research arm of the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

Our program is in development and will include the agenda setting economic overview session with ABARES short to medium term forecasts; thought provoking panel discussions on drought and risk and agriculture in regional Australia; as well as in-depth analysis for key commodities, weather and climate trends and farm financial performance at the agriculture in focus session. Complementing this line-up will be sessions on key industry issues including water, trade, global value chains and investment in value adding. Over two days, delegates will hear from international speakers, industry leading analysts and producers from across Australia.
