There are only two months until Hort Connections 2018, the biggest business destination for Australian horticulture, and the three-day Trade Show offers something for everyone attending this huge event.

More than 180 of the biggest companies in Australian horticulture will be exhibiting at the Trade Show, which opens on Monday 18 May 2018 and runs through to Wednesday 20 June 2018. The full list of exhibitors is available on the Hort Connections website – including a full floor map of the Trade Show, where you can find where to go to meet the contacts that can help you take your business to the next level.

The Trade Show is sponsored by FMA/CMAA representing Australia’s fresh produce markets, who will once again be putting on a show-stopping fresh produce display on the Trade Show floor. This display has been a hit with previous delegates, so be sure to stop by and take a look at some of the high-quality produce being bought and sold every day on Australian market floors, and have a chat with representatives from Australia’s markets about the work they do to support growers.

There’ll be valuable business opportunities on offer as well, with a wide array of service providers and suppliers waiting to make a deal at the Trade Show. For example, if you’re after your next packaging solution, the Visy booth will be a must-visit destination to talk about their fresh produce packaging services that can help your produce arrive fresher and leave your customers even happier.

We’re also proud to be hosting Corteva Agriscience, the agriculture division of DowDuPont. Representatives from Corteva will be available to talk to growers about their work helping growers improve their crop productivity – from increasing seed performance and optimising profitability to controlling pests and diseases and enhancing output and functionality.

With nearly 300 booth spaces filling up this massive Trade Show, there’s something for your business, no matter what you’re looking for:

  • Machinery and equipment providers like John Deere and Dobmac Vegetable Machinery
  • Crop chemistry companies like Bayer and Syngenta
  • Irrigation specialists like Netafim and Toro Australia
  • Plant breeders like Rijk Zwaan, energy companies like Flow Power, market analysts like Freshlogic and many, many more besides!
