POSTPONED: Big Tech | Big Ideas Conference and Field Day


Following the latest developments with the Covid pandemic in NSW, we have decided to postpone large face-to-face events scheduled for January and February. As a result, Big Tech Big Ideas has been postponed.

As we have seen enormous interest in the event from both farmers and the business sector we realised the importance of the information we are trying to deliver to producers and stress that the event is postponed and not cancelled.

You can continue to register your interest to stay up-to-date once a new date is confirmed.
