About the Congress
The Australian banana industry’s premier event is coming to Cairns in 2023.
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 15th Congress is returning to the Cairns Convention Centre and the Pullman Cairns Reef Casino hotel, 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 2023!
You've seen him on TV, you've seen him online, you may have seen him down the pub...
