In 2017, Ausveg, Australia's industry body representing 9,000 vegetable and potato growers, is hosting a joint industry conference and trade show with the Produce Marketing Association-Australia-New Zealand.

The two organizations are also in discussions with other potential co-hosts for the event, which is tentatively scheduled for May or June next year at the Adelaide Convention Centre, according to a news release.

Ausveg's chairman Geoff Moar expressed optimism in the industry event's potential to provide more information and value to growers and industry members.

"We are looking forward to working with PMA-ANZ to create a truly unified horticultural event that will bring growers and industry from around the world to one location. We are confident this partnership will ensure attendees can benefit from listening to a wider range of world-class presenters, visit the industry's leading agribusinesses at an expansive trade show, and network with each other," Moar said in the release.
