The Ai Group Confectionery Sector’s premier annual event for the Australian confectionery industry is back in-person. Following a two year enforced break, we are aiming to make ConTech2022 bigger and better!

This year we'll explore how the industry will "bounce back".

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.

Aside from the speakers program and trade exhibition, another highlight of ConTech is the popular evening networking event which will feature one of Australia's best, most experienced, most well-travelled stand-up comedians, Anthony Lehmann, otherwise known as Lehmo.

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

ConTech2022 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.

For further information, including registration, sponsorship and trade exhibition inquiries, please contact our Technical & Regulatory Manager, Jennifer Thompson.

Looking forward to seeing you in May.
