Brisbane will host a major gathering of the agricultural industry and government stakeholders in October.

The AgForce 2024 Queensland Agriculture Industry Conference will be held on October 1 and 2 with the theme “back to the bush”.

AgForce CEO Michael Guerin said the event would provide the opportunity for stakeholders to discuss the key issues impacting Queensland agriculture.

“With many significant issues occurring in Queensland agriculture at the moment, such as land use protection and carbon and natural capital, AgForce recognised the need to bring together industry and government and foster critical conversations about the future of agriculture in the state,” he said.

“As this is an election year in Queensland, now is the time for us to be talking about key matters impacting the industry and how we can address them, as well as explore what opportunities are available to support growth.”

The event will be held at the Royal International Convention Centre in Brisbane and will be open to AgForce members, state and local government stakeholders, and others who are interested in Queensland agriculture.

Registration and sponsorship opportunities will open soon. More details are on the AgForce Website.
