Agriculture industry representatives and government stakeholders will converge on Brisbane on 1-2 October for AgForce’s 2024 Queensland Agriculture Industry Conference.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Back the bush’, which aligns with AgForce’s broader state campaign to garner investment and support of the agriculture industry as Queensland approaches an election later this year. 

Michael Guerin, AgForce CEO, said the event will 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,” said Mr Guerin.

“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.  

“This Conference is a must-attend event for anyone who plays a role in protecting and enhancing Queensland’s agricultural industry and wants to ensure that our industry continues to support positive economic, environmental, societal and cultural outcomes to the benefit of all Queenslanders,” said Mr Guerin. 

“Protecting our agricultural industry is a high priority and requires government and industry to work collaboratively to succeed. This event will provide a platform for us to work together to address important issues, share learnings and insights, and generate ideas to capitalise on opportunities and innovations.”

“If you want to be a part of the conversation about the future of Queensland agriculture, we’d love to see you in October, so make sure you lock the date in your calendar.”
