Tuesday 14 May 2024 | MCG, Melbourne

The Ai Group Confectionery Sector’s premier annual event for the Australian confectionery industry will be held on Tuesday, 14 May 2024!

ConTech is the key destination for a broad range of confectionery and wider food industry professionals and provides an unparalleled opportunity to engage with over 140 key industry representatives during the course of the day.

This year we'll explore how the industry will ‘embrace the future in confectionery’, with the support of our Principal Sponsor, The Manildra Group and other key industry players. Together, we bring you this stand-out annual event in the confectionery calendar.

Registration is now open!

Please note the early bird reduced registration rate is available until 26 April.

We’ve secured some great speakers and the complementary trade display will provide a parallel information resource.

We are, again, encouraging your company procurement people to attend ConTech, to support our supplier sponsors and trade exhibitors. We seek your encouragement to attract these colleagues, to support those that support you. If you could share names with us, it would be immensely helpful and we can ensure they receive the registration details directly.

For those that cannot attend the day conference program, we strongly encourage your attendance at the evening networking event. This year we are very pleased to be holding the dinner in the iconic MCG Long Room. The ‘after-dinner’ guest speaker is communication and behaviour exert, Anthony Laye. Anthony’s ‘laugh and learn’ session will arm the audience with practical tools to be better and do better!

Please circulate the ConTech2024 registration details internally and to interested supply chain partners.

We look forward to seeing you on 14 May.

In the meantime, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Thompson on or Julie Gerrard at
