Event description

Description

Welcome!

The APA conference committee is excited to present this year’s Australian Pecan Association Conference. This year we will be travelling to the mid-north coast region of NSW to beautiful Port Macquarie.

What a great opportunity to book in some well needed holiday time (tax deductible!) in this neck of the woods and reward yourself for all the hard work after this year’s harvest!

What you can Expect this Year

In the past we have focused mainly on our AGM with a few additional speakers & events. For this year’s conference we wanted to ramp things up a bit…we have some exciting new ideas that we hope you will all love along with many of the traditional favourites from past conferences. We really want to make this the first year where we offer a truly professional conference experience worthy of our growing pecan industry.

Day one will be a full day of really interesting industry speakers – in the morning we will focus on big picture, global, retail and business perspectives followed by our AGM. In the afternoon we have a full line up of industry & grower speakers including the latest grower ag tech, soil and agronomy issues. Mindful that we have growers at different stages of the journey, we have endeavoured to offer a tiered approach in the afternoon – you can choose which is best for you.

One of the highlights of our conference this year will be our social pecan cocktail evening event with a chance to kick back at the end of the day with fellow pecan industry peeps over a drink or two.

Sunday morning will start with a warming rustic breakfast by the fire at the Old Butter Factory, focusing on the latest on health & nutrition information from Belinda Neville from Nuts for Life, followed by a field day not far out of town to Will & Sally Cutlers farm, at Telegraph Point, NSW.

Be Part of the Action!

Also at conference this year will be terrific competitions open to all our members & families, including old favourites “Best Pecan” & “Best Pecan Recipe” plus we will be hosting a new Pecan Photo Competition with several categories including a kids section. Join in the action and submit something for one or all of the categories.

Support the Industry that Supports you

We have aimed to provide a great value conference this year. You will notice we are charging a nominal fee this year for attendance. This is an unavoidable change because we want to provide a truly professional conference for our valued members, and of course at the end of the day, we have to charge cost fees for catering. Everything else has been supported by our very generous sponsors, to ensure you get great value from a terrific conference! We encourage you to take the time to connect with the suppliers at conference at the trade display.

Needless to say we have a really terrific line up of conference speakers and events this year that we know you will love to be part of. You CANNOT MISS THIS…enrol now to make the most of our early bird rates!

Lastly, on behalf of the conference committee I personally welcome you to our exciting Australian pecan industry event and look forward to seeing you in Port Macquarie!
