Australian Grain Storage & Protection Conference

POSTPONED TO 24 AUGUST, 2021


UPDATE on 4 August 2021

With multiple states currently in lockdown and complex border and travel restrictions, we have evaluated various options for the Grain Storage & Protection Conference 2021. We engaged with our sponsors, delegates, speakers and members of the Strategic Working Group of the National Working Party on Grain Protection. For the safety and benefit of all involved and based on the feedback we received, it was decided to run this event online.

Grain Storage & Protection Conference 2021 is now set to run in a completely virtual format, with more than 20 speakers lined up for this event. For a large number of organisations and individuals currently managing their businesses through the lockdown, this is an opportunity to gain critical insights and updates from the industry as well as connect with the industry peers.

The Grain Storage & Protection Conference 2021 will now take place virtually on 24 August 2021, as a one-day conference. In order to open this event to as many in the industry as possible during these challenging times, the ticket price has been reduced to $195 (inc GST).

Please note that your previous conference tickets will be automatically transferred to the new date of 24 August 2021 and you will receive appropriate refund for the difference in your ticket price. If you are unable to attend, please contact us within the next 5 days to discuss your options.

 

 

DATE: 24 AUGUST 2021

Location: Virtual Event

Enquiries: Julia O'Keeffe 0449 038 330 or admin@graintrade.org.au
