We are back in 2023 with the annual Horticulture Conference. This year’s theme is Sharing Successes to Strengthen Our Future. Speaker sessions will provide inspiration and the opportunity for robust discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing the horticulture industry. The conference will also showcase and celebrate success, while being realistic and acknowledging the impact of adverse weather on some parts of our industry. By coming together to share perspectives, we can connect with and energise each other, which is imperative in the current challenging and uncertain environment.
The Horticulture Conference 2023: Sharing Successes to Strengthen Our Future will focus on the excellent work growers are already doing to address challenges, in a world that has changed and will continue to change. The conference will be a unique opportunity to hear from politicians on both sides of the house, mental health experts, economists, and growers themselves as they offer insights and perspectives on the future of the industry.
This year’s gala dinner will combine with the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme conference, leaning further into the ‘sharing’ theme. The gala dinner will be held on Wednesday evening.
