About the Conference

Over the past 12 months, the agribusiness sector has weathered a storm of regulatory challenges, from intensified scrutiny on environmental claims, to the tightening grip of cartel and monopoly laws. Coupled with substantial workplace relations reforms as well as new workplace health and safety laws, the landscape is fraught with unprecedented compliance issues. TEN The Education Network’s 8th Annual Agribusiness Law Conferences explores these issues and more, including ESG compliance, recent developments involving water, as well as maximising land value through carbon credit trading.

TEN is proud to once again welcome the participation of our major sponsors - AACo (Australian Agricultural Company Limited), Elders, and Rabobank and welcome our new supporting partners - Bindaree Food Group, Ward Keller and Sun Rice Group.

Feedback

  • Fantastic conference with relevant topics and accomplished speakers who overall were excellent and high calibre.
  • Excellent speakers who were completely across their subject matter. As many attendees appeared to be in-house counsel for agribusinesses the questions of the speakers were interesting and relevant and gave insight into their business' particular challenges. Enjoyed the cocktail party - great networking opportunity.
  • The substantive content is incredible, combined with interesting and effective speakers. I find even the material in areas in which I don't practice interesting. Great content, excellent to meet peers in our industry. Loved being on the Gold Coast. Efficiently run. Content is so well targeted for my role I would be happy to return.
