Why Partner and/or Exhibit at the 2015 Banana Industry Congress?

• Partnering and/or Exhibiting provides an excellent opportunity to promote your company, to support your brands and to maintain a high profile among delegates before, during and after the Congress

• Congress delegates are keen to improve their knowledge. Aligning your company with this powerful educational experience demonstrates your commitment to assisting attendee development

• Your representatives can network informally with delegates from around Australia

• Your company will benefit significantly from exposure to an interested, relevant and influential audience in an informal yet informative environment away from the competition of everyday distractions.

Please note that while our Partners will be given priority placement within the exhibition, early commitment will ensure that your company can secure a prominent location on the exhibition floor plan as the 2013 exhibition did sell out. The Director Sponsorship and Exhibitions will be delighted to discuss the benefits of upgrading your exhibit to maximise your exhibition presence.

Who will attend?

A detailed marketing strategy will be developed to ensure that the 2015 Banana Industry Congress is extensively publicised prior to during, and after the Congress.

With these strategies in place, and building on the success of the 2013 Congress, the Congress Management Committee expects to attract hundreds of delegates all actively working in the banana industry, including growers and accompanying partners. A Partners’ Program will be a part of our Social Program. Your participation at this important event will offer you a unique platform to interact with a national group of decision makers and to keep them informed with your latest advancements and industry trends.

We take this opportunity to thank our foundation partner Visy Boxes & More. The banana industry is very fortunate to have the support of our foundation partner. Visy’s constant support for all our 11 events, over more than 20 years through our industry’s good and tough times, is much appreciated.
