This year we are taking The Australian National Olive Industry Conference and Trade Exhibition to beautiful Geelong Victoria. Geelong is an affordable destination that is easy to drive to. Geelong is 101km from Melbourne airport and 21.6kms from Avalon Airport. Gull Airport Service (gull.com.au) offer scheduled services between Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport and Geelong and costs about $58.00. There is also a train that runs from the Airport to Southern Cross Station (every 5 mins) and then to Geelong (hourly) and costs $28.00.
There are a number of good reasons why you should attend the Australian Olive Industry’s Premiér Olive event:
1.The topics are chosen specifically to address common issues growers are faced with whilst also providing information about what is happening around the world. The Panel Sessions on Day 2 will be covering many of the practical aspects of grove management and provide a good opportunity to interact with speakers.
2. The round table seating plan offers great networking opportunities and the inclusive speaker format allows for time after the presentation to talk to others at your table about the topic and then formulate questions back to the speaker. Ensuring delegates come away feeling empowered with knowledge is the main aim of the Conference.
3.This year we have bought our wonderful exhibitors inside so they can also benefit from learning more about the industry they support.
