Nineteen thousand registration brochures are planned to be distributed around Australia and overseas, during February 2007, for the Thirteenth Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference (13AWITC).
The Conference and associated trade exhibition (WineTech 2007), will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia from 28 July to 2 August 2007.
The eight formal sessions and three colloquia feature 36 Australian speakers and 18 international speakers from countries such as US, Switzerland, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and South Africa. Whilst the program covers a wide range of industry issues from the vineyard through to the consumer, it does have a focus on the environment and climate change.
For the first time, the 13AWITC and the Fourth Australian Wine Industry Environment Conference will align their events, with the Environment Conference being held on the Thursday, 2 August. Further information can be found at: http://www.winesa.asn.au/content/40
Presentations on environment and climate change issues will be given with Dr Peter Hayman’s (SARDI) presentation entitled Climate change – consequences for the wine industry on Sunday, 29 July. Peter further participates in a three hour colloquium on climate change as Chairman, coordinated by Dr Richard Smart (Smart Viticulture) and Russell Johnstone (Orlando Wines), to be held on Monday, 30 July.
Sponsored by the Thomas Walter Hardy Memorial Trust, presentations in this colloquium will be given by Dr Richard Smart (Smart Viticulture), Dr Penny Whetton (CSIRO Division Marine and Atmospheric Sciences), Dr Greg Jones (Southern Oregon University, USA), Dr Leanne Webb (CSIRO/University of Melbourne), Dr Stuart McNab (Foster's Wine Estates), David Pearce (The New Zealand Wine Company, NZ) and Professor Snow Barlow (University of Melbourne).
