The annual general meeting of the Wine Grape Growers Australia (WGGA) will be held on Wednesday November 12, 2014 in Adelaide with registration open at 9am and the meeting commencing at 9.30am.
Those present will also hear from Riverland Wine and Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) Chairman, Brian Walsh, and have the opportunity to discuss any questions following the merger earlier this year.
Members attending the AGM are invited to stay for lunch from 12pm.
The AGM will be followed by an afternoon seminar Surviving the Present – Innovate for the future exploring 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.
There will be a brief presentation by four speakers, followed by an expert panel for Q&A. The guest speakers are:
• Louisa Rose (AWRI Chair)
• Jeff McDonald (Collaborative Ventures)
• Shane Tremble (Woolworths Liquor Group)
• Rob Hunt (Agricultural Consultant)
More information and a program of both events are available on the WGGA website.
