Protected Cropping Australia’s conference - PCA2023

Interested in protected cropping? Then Protected Cropping Australia’s Conference – PCA2023 is the place for you.

Protected Cropping is one of the fastest growing horticultural sectors in Australia and encompasses many sectors of horticulture including, but not limited to, fruits, vegetables, berries, leafy greens, herbs, cut flowers, nursery, medicinal cannabis, aquaponics, vertical farms, and controlled environmental agriculture industries. PCA is well known in this field, representing commercial hydroponic, greenhouse, and indoor growers in Australia, and has garnered a wide international following over their years of running their events.

The theme of this year’s conference will be ‘Growing our Future – People Plant Profits.’ The program includes a range of inspiring and thought-provoking speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors from Australia and abroad who will share knowledge, research, and innovations.

“A key feature of PCA2023 is working with our partners, the allied trade and equipment suppliers, to encourage greater grower attendance through subsidizing 150 free grower passes. This will provide entry to our conference and exhibition trade show, including tailored skills training for growers to meet the needs of the various sectors PCA represents,” Emily Rigby, PCA2023 Conference Chair.

The conference will also include a program consisting of speakers, networking events, poster presentations, discussion panels, grower workshops (including a full-day Plant Empowerment Workshop), and an additional third farm tour will feature in addition to the regular conference program, exhibition trade show, conference dinner and the ever-popular farm tours.

“At PCA, we continue to support our students and provide additional support to the protected cropping next-generation cohort to attend and make new connections at this event. On behalf of the PCA2023 Committee and the PCA Board, I am delighted to invite you to join us at PCA2023 Conference. We look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane in July. I hope to see you there,” Emily Rigby concludes.

Join growers, researchers, allied trade, key industry stakeholders, and like-minded individuals at the conference held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, July 17-20.
