Welcome to ABARES Outlook 2017 conference - Innovation in agriculture – capturing the opportunities

Outlook 2017 is the premier information and networking forum for the agriculture sector.

The Outlook 2017 theme is Innovation in agriculture – captu​​ring 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. Join delegates in Canberra on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 March.


Over two days, hear from industry leading analysts and producers from across Australia at sessions including the economic overview for Australia’s economy and international outlook; a digital innovation panel discussion; global perspectives on agriculture; farm performance; fisheries; novel pest management technologies; grains; water; managing natural capital; natural fibres; climate; emerging industries; dairy; meat; horticulture and winegrapes.
