About the conference

Growing together

It has been almost four years since the Almond Board of Australia last staged our industry-wide conference and a lot has happened in the interim. Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, Australian almonds have evolved into a powerhouse industry that has attracted significant investment from off-shore investors.

The ABA, in conjunction with Hort Innovation, has almost 30 research and development programs dedicated to addressing key issues on farm, doing more with less and promoting the benefits of consuming a handful of almonds every day.

The aim of the Conference in 2022 will be bringing together as many stakeholders as possible by delivering a Conference program that educates, facilitates, collaborates and celebrates on a wide range of issues from farm gate to plate.

A new interactive program that will provide growers with greater access to expert speakers than ever before is being prepared. There will be a number of new innovations including an alternative Spouses Program that promises an alternative Conference experience beyond the Convention Centre. It recognises that growing almonds is a partnership that starts at home and the Conference should be an event that has something for everyone.

We will also celebrate those that have contributed significantly to the industry and come together to launch an industry wide mental health support network that will be a first for horticulture in Australia.
