Tasmania has won its third major conference in as many weeks, adding a $1.35 million international farming congress to its score card.
The 22nd International Farm Management World Congress 2019 will be held in Launceston, an event expected to attract 250 people. Delegates will spend five-days discussing issues of farm management in a global context plus two-weeks touring across the state engaging with the Tasmanian farming community.
It comes on the heels of Hobart’s successful bids to stage the Sweet Adelines Australia Conventions in Hobart for three consecutive years (2018 – 2020) for between 800 – 1,000 delegates each year, worth an estimated $4.5 million in total, and the Federation of Equatoria Communities Association of Australia in Launceston for 200 delegates in 2017, worth $310,000.
Together, the events secured are worth an estimated $6.2 million to the local economy.
