**Registrations extended until Thursday, 6 October – book now**

The mega-learning experience of the year is now just weeks away. This year’s Conference is ‘live’ only, with no recording or streaming of presentations, so if you haven’t booked your tickets, get moving now!

From zero waste to biennial bearing

The program covers a diverse range of topics to improve your olive business, including: zero waste, getting started in table olive production, Xylella fastidiosa, promotion and marketing, and business value-adding.

Grove management highlights include insight and learnings from the Olives New Zealand Focus Grove Project (which has seen an increase in tree production from 5kg to 25kg+ in participating groves via a targeted practice program), mechanical harvesting of table olives, and biennial bearing.

Latest products and services, personalised advice

The concurrent Trade Exhibition will feature a range of leading olive industry suppliers and service providers, providing a chance to review your business needs and learn about the latest product innovations from experts in the field.

Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to get advice and recommendations relevant to your grove and business. A list of conference exhibitors is available here and is updated regularly.

Ancillary events

For those who enjoy the ‘hands-on’ format of the AOA’s ongoing series of field days, there’s an Optional Field Day on the Friday prior to the plenary program and exhibition. Visiting three local groves for learning and discussion around grove management practices, pruning and low-cost, low-intervention practices will be a strong focus of the day. Places are filling fast, so book ASAP.

And for a break from the ‘serious business’ of the plenary days, Saturday night’s Conference Dinner provides a chance to relax and catch-up with old friends and new over a casual meal and a drink or two. The dinner is included in your Conference registration and transport to the venue is provided.
