Sponsorship & Exhibition


Sponsorship & Exhibition Packages


Bringing together up to 250 delegates from across seven of Australia’s key agricultural government and community sectors – including some of the most innovative minds and influential players, we invite you to be a part of this inaugural Symposium – the first of its kind in Australia – that provides you with the opportunity to connect with, and promote your company, organisation or products to this incredibly diverse audience.

When you participate as a sponsor or exhibitor you will be provided with multiple opportunities to network with key stakeholders related to your industry or organisation and to showcase your products and services. We offer a selection of sponsorship, exhibition and promotional opportunities at various levels and can work with you to create a package that fits your needs and budget.
