THE PREMIER BANANA INDUSTRY EVENT

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST

CONGRESS IN CAIRNS

The Australian banana industry’s premier event is coming to Cairns in 2021.

Join us in Far North Queensland – the heart of banana growing country – from 12-14 May to celebrate our vibrant industry.

Held every two years, Congress is a unique chance for all those involved in producing the nation’s most-loved fruit to network, share ideas and be brought up-to-date with latest cutting edge technology, innovation and essential research and developments affecting industry.

The 14th Congress will be hosted at the newly refurbished Cairns Convention Centre, which will be transformed into ‘Banana Central’ over the two-and-a-half days of the event.

Don’t miss out on celebrating with us in Tropical FNQ in 2021!

A range of domestic and international flights arrive at Cairns Airport, a 10 to 15-minute drive from the city centre.

The world class Cairns Convention Centre is everything you would expect from an international purpose-built venue located amidst nature’s pristine playground.

The Australian Banana Industry Congress 2021 invites you to Cairns, Australia – the heart of Tropical North Queensland and a vibrant city that blends a laid-back tropical sensibility with a buzzing multiculturalism.

A WORD FROM YOUR CONGRESS CHAIR

Recent challenging times have affected every Australian, in one way or another. But, throughout it all, banana growers have continued to grow, pack and deliver the nation’s number one selling fruit to wholesale markets and retail shelves.

Amongst the uncertainty of a global pandemic, farmers across the country have soldiered on and proved not only their genuine resilience in the face of adversity, but also the essential role horticulture plays, in keeping a robust economy.

In 2021, we are excited to invite you to help celebrate our great industry, at the Australian Banana Industry Congress – our premier biennial event.

The two-day event will be held in tropical Far North Queensland – the heart of banana growing country – from May 12-14.

Congress in Cairns, 2021, will be your unique chance to be amongst the largest gathering of banana growers, market leaders, industry decision makers, researchers and other important industry stakeholders.

The event also is the pinnacle opportunity for industry to network, share ideas and be brought up-to-date with latest cutting edge technology, innovative products and essential research and developments affecting industry.

The 2021 Congress will be hosted at the newly refurbished Cairns Convention Centre. The exhibition space offers exceptional opportunities for sponsorship/exhibition exposure and promotion. The venue will be ‘Banana Central’ over the course of the
event.

After the huge success of  Congress on the Gold Coast in 2019, our dedicated 2021 Planning Committee are excited to build on this success by making next year’s event even bigger and better. They’ve already begun developing an exceptional lineup of speakers and plenary sessions. A program that is grower-focused, showcasing innovation, technology, future trends and opportunities that will shape the Australian banana industry well into the future.

But Congress is more than just a preeminent industry gathering. It’s also a time for growers to socialise, celebrate and take some rare time out, away from their businesses. Major social events of Congress will include a Welcome Reception, Trade Show Evening and the highly anticipated Banana Industry Ball and Awards Night. I, along with many other banana growers, are looking forward to participating in Congress 2021. On behalf of my fellow ABGC directors and our 2021 Congress Management Committee we invite to you join us in Cairns for this special event.
