Hort Connections 2018

Combining the National Horticulture Convention and PMA Fresh Connections, Hort Connections 2018 brought together the largest number of growers, supply chain members, government stakeholders and industry service providers in the Australian horticulture industry.

Hort Connections 2018 built on the success of the two previous events run by AUSVEG and PMA A-NZ, incorporating world-class speakers, an expansive Trade Show and unparalleled networking opportunities.
