Statement from AUSVEG and PMA-ANZ regarding Hort Connections 2020

After careful consideration, AUSVEG and the Produce Marketing Association of Australia – New Zealand (PMA-ANZ) have reluctantly decided to postpone Hort Connections 2020, which was due to be held from 15-17 June 2020 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Our industry’s top priority is the health and safety of our community; this includes consumers, growers and other industry partners. As such, the decision to postpone Hort Connections 2020 is, at this stage, the most responsible course of action we can take to maintain our community’s health and safety.

Hort Connections 2021 will be held from 7-9 June 2021 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

We will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Australia and abroad and will be working to ensure that Hort Connections will resume in 2021 bigger and better than ever.

We will honour the financial commitments that industry and supply chain partners have made for Hort Connections 2020 and roll them over into next year’s event. We will be in touch with each industry and supply chain partner separately over the next week to discuss these arrangements in more detail.

We would like to thank those who have supported Hort Connections and look forward to working with you all in 2021.

More details around Hort Connections 2021 will be released in the coming months.
