Australian Grain Storage & Protection Conference

POSTPONED TO 24-25 AUGUST, 2021


UPDATE on 27 May 2021

With the Victorian Government's official announcement of a 7 day COVID-19 lockdown for VIC state-wide, we have evaluated various options for the Grain Storage & Protection Conference 2021 that was planned to take place on 1-2 June. 

We engaged with our sponsors, delegates, speakers and members of the Strategic Working Group of the National Working Party on Grain Protection. For the safety and benefit of all involved and based on the feedback we received, it was decided to postpone this conference until August. The Grain Storage & Protection Conference 2021 will now take place face to face (in person) on 24-25 August at Rydges in Melbourne (same venue) with the same hybrid option offered previously. 

Please note that your conference tickets will be automatically transferred to the new dates of 24-25 August, 2021

 

 

DATE: 1-2 June 2021 (POSTPONED TO 24-25 AUGUST)

Location: Rydges Melbourne, 186 Exhibition St, Melbourne, VIC 3000

Enquiries: Julia O'Keeffe 0449 038 330 or admin@graintrade.org.au
 

The NWPGP 2021 Australian Grain Storage and Protection Conference is an open forum for the entire grains industry to review and discuss the latest market requirements relating to chemical regulations and developments in grain storage and protection.

Presenters will cover national and international regulation along with a range of topics including:

  • Market requirements for MRLs - now and future challenges 
  • Sustainable chemical use and impacts on industry 
  • Insect infestations and their control methods

The NWPGP has been meeting annually for over 45 years, however, the annual conference, delegate list and industry representation continues to expand and evolve – constantly striving to meet industry’s needs.
