This coming October, Growcom in association with Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ) will host the inaugural Queensland Horticulture Export Conference (QHEC) showcasing Queensland’s fresh produce industry to potential export markets.

Under the theme, Growing for Export the QHEC program will run from the 10 – 11 October at the Brisbane Hilton with pre-conference tours available preceding the event.

With a conference program designed to be of interest to not only established exporters but those businesses looking to explore export opportunities, the conference is expected to attract over 200 delegates from the region and internationally.

Presentations will cover topics such as:

  • How to get started in export
  • Opportunities for Queensland horticulture in Asia
  • Buyers perspective – what export customers want
  • Boutique export opportunities for Queensland produce
  • How to access Asian markets
  • Transport and freight to export markets

While intended to be an informative event, the conference will also allow for Queensland growers to build networks and establish contacts with international buyers.

As Australia’s leading State for horticultural production, Growcom is committed to helping Queensland farmers expand their market opportunities overseas and capitalise on commercial business opportunities.

Horticultural businesses from across the State are encouraged to attend to take advantage of this opportunity.
