Pan Pacific Pork Expo successful
Pan Pacific Pork Expo 2008, incorporating Uptake, held
on the Gold Coast, Queensland 18-19 June was considered a huge success, drawing
plenty of interest from close to 400 delegates.
Due to the current tough climate the Australian pig industry is operating
in, this was the first year two major key industry events were brought together
- PPPE and Uptake.
Both events are biennial and this year marked 10
years for PPPE (fifth event). Chairman of the PPPE 2008 (incorporating Uptake)
Committee, Dr Rob van Barneveld, said the event would not have been possible
without the support of the committed exhibitors and sponsors.
Barneveld said. â€œEvents such as these are crucial to the survival of the
Australian pork industry. They provide an opportunity for producers to listen to
the experts, ask questions and gain a greater understanding of where their
industry is heading.
â€œThe industry has been through some tough times,
however by gaining a better understating of where we are heading, and getting
high quality research and information from across the world into the wider
audience, the Australian pork industry can look forward to a healthy future".
Based on the success of the 2008 event, Dr van Barneveld believes that
APL and the Pork CRC will consider using a similar platform in 2010 for the
delivery of key research outcomes, with June 16-17, 2010 currently suggested as
dates at a venue to be advised.
