After putting the conference planning on ice for 2020, we have received Commonwealth Government support for the 2021 WagyuEdge Conference, to be held at RACV Royal Pines on the Gold Coast.
The Conference will be held 27-29 April, with an impressive program and speaker line-up similar to that planned for 2020. Sessions will cover Herd Rebuilding, research and production trends in Japan and other international speakers, along with technical information and representatives from some of Australia’s most progressive Wagyu organisations.
Early Bird rates are now open for delegate registration, and close 30 March. We encourage you to get in on these low rates and secure yourself a spot and to secure a room at the event venue – RACV Royal Pines Resort – home to the Australian PGA Championship.
Given the timing of the 2021 WagyuEdge Conference – the week prior to Beef2021 in Rockhampton, we will be holding a 3-day tour departing Friday 30 April from the Gold Coast to finish in Rockhampton for Beef 2021 (2 – 7 May).
The tour will include hallmark properties through southern and central Queensland stopping in at Roma, Dalby and Emerald.
We will arrive in Rockhampton early on Monday the 3rd of May so that folks can get organised to visit Beef2021. All the details and updates will be on the conference webpage
AWA will again have a stand at Beef2021 in the Durack Pavilion and we look forward to seeing you there.
