Outlook 2018

Outlook 2018 - we invite you to contribute

ABARES is convening the Outlook 2018 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.

We anticipate Outlook 2018 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.
