Australia’s Fresh Produce Markets has been announced as the official Hort Connections 2021 Trade Show sponsor

Australia’s Fresh Produce Markets, a collaboration between Fresh Markets Australia (FMA) and Central Markets Association of Australia (CMAA), has come on board as the latest co-host.

Hort Connections 2021, will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 7 to 9 June 2021.

The event will bring members from all sectors of the horticulture industry together, including growers, supply chain members, government stakeholders and industry service providers, to celebrate the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables.

AUSVEG said that having the industry body for fresh produce markets sign up as the Hort Connections Trade Show sponsor for the fourth time will provide further opportunities for the event to reach a wider number of industry members.

“We are thrilled that the FMA and CMAA collaboration has once again signed on as co-host and Trade Show sponsor for Hort Connections.

“Its presence at the trade show has been a focal point of the trade show for many years and the organisation represents a large and critical sector of the horticulture industry,” said AUSVEG’s Nathan McIntyre.

“We hope that having Australia’s Fresh Produce Markets back for Hort Connections 2021 enables the conference to reassert itself as the place to be for the Australian fruit and vegetable industry.”

“It was a difficult decision to postpone the event in 2020, but feedback we are hearing from industry at the moment is that people are keen to meet up in person to celebrate the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables.

“And reconnect after a tumultuous 18 months that has resulted in significant hardship for many growers and their businesses, and tested the industry’s resolve.”

Fresh Markets Australia Chairman Shane Schnitzler said that it was important for the broader industry to take the opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues from across the sector and forge new connections to strengthen their business networks.

“Hort Connections 2021 will be a true celebration for what the industry has achieved and how growers, central markets and the broader supply chain have banded together to ensure continuous supply of fruits and vegetables in the face of unprecedented challenges,” said Mr Schnitzler.

“We are proud to continue supporting the industry through the sponsorship of the Hort Connections Trade Show and encourage as many people from across the supply chain to attend to learn about the latest innovations and technologies in the industry.

“And to connect over the challenges everyone has faced, which in many respects have made the industry even more resilient.”
