VFF Symposium

Following a highly productive year for Victorian agriculture, the VFF will be hosting their cross-commodity gathering for all farmers at the Sofitel on Collins in Melbourne.

This will provide a unique opportunity to engage with hundreds of producers from across Victoria.

Thursday 13 October – Social Function

To be held at Colonial Brewing and Starward Whisky in Fishermans Bend. A tour of each facility will be held and beer and whisky samples, plus substantial canapés will be provided. The tours will include information from the Head Brewers and Distillers on supply chains, their processes, use of waste and links to our VFF farms.

Friday 14 October – VFF Symposium and Dinner

At the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins, our formal Symposium will be for VFF members and non-members to learn, present, discuss and influence industry developments and government policy, and be inspired by thought leaders from various sectors. The Symposium provides the following benefits:

• An opportunity for key opinion leaders and decision makers within the agriculture industry, and beyond, to gather;

• A forum to ponder and debate issues affecting our industry;

• An excellent opportunity to socialise and network with delegates and corporate sponsors, with dedicated time for social activities; and

• The opportunity to reach a highly engaged audience of at least 200 Victorian agriculture professionals


We are still in the process of confirming presenters for the event and more will be added over the coming weeks in addition to: Jane Bunn, John Blackburn AO, Tanya Barden, Richard Eckard, Rob Clayton, Sue Ogilvy and Emma Germano
