Agribuzz

In 2009, the Association began Agribuzz - a smart-casual evening event in a relaxed atmosphere that facilitates networking and professional development opportunities.

Over drinks and canapés, our members and friends exchange business intelligence and views, enjoy brief presentations from key-note speakers and take the rare chance to meet agribusiness leaders and leaders-in–the-making.

If you are interested in sponsoring an Agribuzz next year or you have suggestions for Agribuzz or speakers you'd like to hear, please email president@nswfarmwriters.org.au.
