Today’s Challenges Tomorrow’s Success 15th Australian Almond Conference Stamford Grand Hotel Glenelg, South Australia October 29-31, 2013
Highlights Largest EVER Trade Show
Join us for the 2013 Australian Almond Conference!
Significant growth in delegate attendance at recent conferences sees us moving to a city venue for the first time to provide more space, easier airport access, and ample on-site accommodation for all. We are pleased to announce that the 14th Annual Australian Almond Conference, from 29th to 31st October 2013 will be held at the Stamford Grand Hotel in Glenelg, South Australia. This year’s Conference will include presentations by respected researchers and experts covering the entire supply chain from both a domestic and an international perspective. Speakers will address issues of industry interest from pollination to promotion and product quality to price prediction. Growers and delegates will go away with, not only a thorough understanding of the industry’s research activities but also the wide ranging efforts to further develop our industry; from production through to processing and onto the marketing of our largest ever almond crop. A ‘must attend’ event on the industry calendar, this Conference is the largest gathering of almond industry representatives in Australia. It brings together over 200 Australian and international delegates, with participants including growers, processors, marketers, researchers, industry suppliers and other interested persons. The Australian almond industry has come a long way in a short period of time. With a forecast record crop of 78,000 in 2013, set to increase to 80,600 tonnes next season, almonds are Australia’s fastest growing horticultural industry, servicing an expanding domestic market and major export markets in India, Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the Middle East. Almonds are now Australia’s largest horticultural export industry, and we have surpassed Spain to become the second largest global producer of almonds, behind the United States. Australia’s almond crop will reach an industry farm-gate value in excess of $500 million once most of the 8 million trees already planted reach full maturity.
