Tuesday 20 June 2023 | MCG, Melbourne

The Ai Group Confectionery Sector’s premier annual event for the Australian confectionery industry will be held on Tuesday, 20 June 2023!

This year we'll explore how the industry will "Capture Creativity through Curiosity".

The one day event comprises a full day speakers’ program, accompanied by a trade exhibition and networking evening event.

ConTech is the key destination for confectionery technicians and provides an unparalleled opportunity to network with industry participants. It is where technicians become technical experts and technical experts have the opportunity to engage with other industry specialists.

William Angliss Institute food technology students are an important participant group in our ConTech audience – important from the perspective that they are part of the next generation of our industry. We particularly and warmly welcome their attendance.

ConTech is also where the important issues and challenges facing the industry and potential solutions are discussed, including intelligence on domestic and global opportunities and what it means for stakeholders in our supply chain.

As always, there are opportunities for companies to promote their business and support the industry by association with a range of sponsorship opportunities.

ConTech2023 is brought to you with the continuing support of the ConTech Principal Sponsor - The Manildra Group - and we thank them and all our sponsors for their generous support of the industry.
