Thinking about exhibiting at PMA Fresh Connections 2014? Here's what some of our previous exhibitors have to say about their experience:
"The company I previously worked -CHEP- has successfully sponsored across all the years of Fresh Connections being held in Australia. The company I work for now Fresh Produce Group has also successfully sponsored across all of those years. If you are looking for the gateway to accessing the best, brightest and most influential people working in the Australian Horticultural Industry then this is absolutely the event for you. It is a wonderful forum for networking, for seeing the latest that technology has to offer across all sectors of the industry and to get your message in front of the right people. You will also get the opportunity to meet scholarship students participating in the PMA's Foundation for Industry Talent. You never know, your next employee could come from this crop of bright young people."
Mark Blue, Fresh Produce Group (previously of CHEP), 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 sponsor
"The conference is a great opportunity to meet hundreds of people at the one time, at the one place and do business in one or two days. If you tried to do that in your own time it would take weeks. Everyone in the industry should be involved if they are serious about growing their business. It's an opportunity you just can't afford to miss in today's fast paced, time poor environment."
Vince Brancatisano, Prestige Produce, 2012 exhibitor
"We see this event as not only an opportunity to provide information exchange and networking but also for our members and the broader market community to get involved in the industry and do some business."
Shane Schnitzler, President, Australian Chamber of Fruit and Vegetable Industries, 2013, 2012 exhibitor
Displaying our produce at PMA Fresh Connections is another step in getting the organic name out to Australian buyers... It is important that we are at these events flying the organic flag and showing the industry the high quality of organic produce."
Jennifer Osborne, Manager, Organic Growers Group, 2012 Exhibitor
"We had never exhibited at a trade show before so we were not sure what to expect...we were really happy with the outcome."
Deborah Corrigan, Corrigan's Produce Farms Pty Ltd, 2013, 2012 exhibitor
"Fresh Connections is a great opportunity for our IGA retailers to meet with many of their suppliers and experience what this industry has to offer."
Nick Pagett, General Manager Fresh Produce, Metcash Food and Grocery, 2012 exhibitor
"Every year PMA Fresh Connections seems to gain more engagement from the industry and this year the Trade Show was a great example of how the conference has grown. For Moraitis, participating in the Trade Show is something we are committed to each year, it is a great opportunity to showcase our produce portfolio and the booth acts as a starting point for networking. The number and diversity of exhibitors and the efforts by all was fantastic. We are passionate about supporting the industry and look forward to being part of the continued growth in years to come."
Sharnah Coulthart, Moriatis Group, 2011 exhibitor, 2013, 2012 sponsor
"It was great to see produce being displayed and we are really happy that we went to the trouble of getting our produce to Brisbane and talking with the many delegates and potential customers who showed interest in our produce."
Joe Ruffo, Tripod Farmers, 2011 exhibitor
