This year’s program will bring you the latest in R&D and industry news, a snapshot of the retail landscape, practical on-farm insights and hopefully a few laughs.
Among the presentations are:
· Global banana trade trends, featuring Marc Jackson (Fyffes Bananas International) and Wayne Prowse (Fresh Intelligence Consulting)
· Grower innovation, featuring Peter Inderbitzin (Lakeland), Rob Zahra (Innisfail), Mark Nucifora (Innisfail) and Matt Abbott (Innisfail)
· Living and farming with TR4, featuring Mark Smith (Darwin Fruit Farm) and Gavin and Stephen MacKay (MacKays Bananas)
· Future of Bananas and R&D, featuring discussion on breeding, genetics, and what lies ahead.
The two-days of plenary sessions will be complemented by site tours, a tradeshow, social events and, of course, the 2019 Banana Ball (with special guests comedian Dave Hughes and news presenter Georgina Lewis).
The five-star venue and Gold Coast location ensure this event will not only provide you with tools for your banana business, it will also give you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the festivities.
