PCA 2025 TBA

The Protected Cropping Australia 2023 Conference Committee are pleased to announce the PCA2023 Conference to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from the 17-20 July.

The conference theme for PCA2023 is “Growing our Future.” A range of inspiring and thought-provoking speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors from here in Australia and abroad will share their knowledge, research, and innovations to all delegates.

Protected Cropping is one of the fastest growing horticultural sectors in Australia and PCA have an enviable reputation of running great events filled with knowledge building and networking opportunities.

PCA is the peak industry body representing commercial hydroponic, greenhouse and controlled environment growers in Australia and has a wide international following.

A key feature of PCA2023 is working with our partners, the allied trade and equipment suppliers to encourage greater grower attendance through subsidising up to 150 free grower trade show passes. This will allow entry to our popular exhibition trade show and include tailored skills training for growers to meet the needs of the various sectors PCA represent.

The Protected Cropping industry encompasses many sectors of horticulture including, but not limited to fruits, vegetables, berries, leafy greens, herbs, cut flowers, nursery, medicinal cannabis and aquaponics, vertical farms and controlled environmental agriculture industries.

An innovative and fresh program of speakers, networking events, training and grower discussion panels will feature in addition to the regular conference program, exhibition trade show, conference dinner and the ever-popular farm tours.

PCA will also collaborate with our partners to continue supporting our students and provide additional support to the protected cropping next generation cohort to attend and make new connections at this exciting, not to be missed event.
