The Regional Outlook conferences are an essential part of sharing our commodity forecasts and research results, and hearing from you about key regional agricultural issues. We’ll be working with local organisations to develop a tailored conference program to address key local issues and commodities.
We hope to see you at one of the following Regional Outlook conferences in 2022:
- Wagga Wagga, NSW – Wednesday 15 June
- Toowoomba, Qld – Wednesday 27 July
- Bendigo, Vic – Wednesday 5 October
- Hobart, Tas – Wednesday 2 November
Keep up to date on future Regional Outlook conferences through the ABARES Events newsletter.
Contact us if you’d like to participate in a Regional Outlook conference program, recommend a speaker, host a trade stand or nominate an issue to be addressed.
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. Delegates include producers, bankers, consultants and other service providers, rural financial counsellors, local business owners, state and local government staff, regional development groups and others with a passion and commitment to their region.
The Regional Outlook conferences follow from the national Outlook 2022 conference held in Canberra in March, with the theme Growing agriculture through innovation and sustainability.
