Features include:

> No sponsors, so no commitments. Just relevant Farming topics with people in the know.

> Five separate opportunities to network and talk to people during the day.

> No Farm Tender talks, however, all of our staff will be there.

> Individuals with a business associated with Farming are welcome to attend (at extra cost), but they can bring flyers, cards, they can wear their uniform, and they will have opportunities to network with Farmers.

And what about our door prize:


This is what some people thought of our last event:

"A great mix of speakers who were all very informative and interesting. A great opportunity to network and the whole event was run very well."

"First-class event, first-class information and great country atmosphere."

"It was a great day, speakers were excellent, and it gave me lots to think about"

"The event was informative and insightful. While we didn't all have a direct correlation with all of the speakers, the great thing is they provoked thought on our own businesses and exposed us to alternate options".

"Your event gave us the opportunity to expose the younger ones to new concepts. While they won't have absorbed everything from the day, we have turned on the light bulb with a number of important things."

"This was my first Farm Tender conference. I enjoyed it immensely. I would encourage anyone to make the effort to attend. You won't be disappointed."
