Ongoing project

Transforming leadership in Australian horticulture through the Hort Connections partnership (LP22000)

Key research provider: AUSVEG

What's it all about?

This investment delivers Hort Innovation’s 2023 and 2024 involvement with Hort Connections, Australia and New Zealand’s largest horticulture conference and trade show. The sponsorship agreement will recognise Hort Innovation as the Principal Convention Partner, which provides a powerful platform to engage with stakeholders across the horticulture sector.

Hort Connections 2023 will be hosted between 5-7 June at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Hort Connections has grown to a 3,000-delegate event and welcomes almost twice the number of growers than it did at the time of conception.

All areas of horticulture will be recognised and celebrated at the conference, bringing together members from the vegetable, fruit, and floral sectors. Hort Connections showcases exciting new products, services, and technologies to help shape the Australian and New Zealand industry – highlighting solutions in agricultural technology, finance, labour, energy and environmental sustainability.

Attendee analysis indicates a diverse cross-section of the produce industry attends Hort Connections, with those identifying as a grower/packer/processor forming the largest segment.
