Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

The 2013 Banana Industry Congress will be the main event for all those within the banana industry – from the growers doing the hard yards on the farms to the industry partners and Government officials that help maintain the industry. People from all parts of the industry will come together at Palmer Coolum Resort to discuss strategies and visions to help sustain the complete package that is the banana and a vital part of Australian life.

As sponsors will be acknowledged on selected print material plus the Congress website leading up to and during the Congress, early commitment will result in increased value and a higher level of exposure for your organisation.
