As mentioned previously the annual general meeting of the Wine Grape Growers Australia (WGGA) will be held on Wednesday November 12, 2014 at the North Adelaide Football Club.
Riverland Wine Chairman and Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) Acting Chairman Brian Walsh will present an AGWA update and discuss any questions following the merger of Wine Australia and Grape and Wine Research Development Corporation (GWRDC) earlier this year.
Documents for the AGM are available on the WGGA website.
Lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the AGM.
All in attendance will be invited to stay for an afternoon seminar: Surviving the present – Innovate for the future. Four speakers will explore changes required in the short-term to adapt to low profitability in the industry, as well as the reasons to be positive about mid-to-longer-term prospects for Australian wine.
The speakers will then form a panel for Q&A.
- Louisa Rose (AWRI Chair)
- Jeff McDonald (Collaborative Ventures)
- Shane Tremble (Woolworths Liquor Group)
