Event description
The Victorian Farmers Federation & National Farmers Federation invite you to explore the future of agriculture at the Towards 2030 Forum.

About this event

In 2018, the NFF released its 2030 Roadmap, a detailed vision for agriculture to become Australia’s next $100 billion industry.

The Towards 2030 Forum is your chance to see the progress being made, with a focus from both a national and Victorian perspective on the issues that matter most to Victorian agriculture.

At this event, you’ll hear from a wide range of industry leaders – across politics, innovation and government – about the steps being taken to grow Australian agriculture and how Victorian farmers and industry continue to play an integral role.
