Regional Outlook conferences
The ABARES Regional Outlook conferences are an essential part of sharing our commodity forecasts and research results, and hearing from our delegates about key regional agricultural issues. We work with local organisations to develop a tailored conference program to address key local issues and commodities.
At each Regional Outlook conference, senior ABARES analysts present the economic overview and forecasts for relevant agricultural commodities and farm financial performance. A range of regionally based speakers and producers discuss industry challenges and strategies for growth, investment and innovation opportunities, natural resource management, plus case studies from people taking innovative approaches in their businesses.Join others from across your region to hear commodity forecasts, discuss industry trends, access information and make new contacts in your community that can encourage new approaches to traditional issues.
