The 9th World Sheep and Wool Congress will take place in Sydney at the Rosehill Gardens Event Centre over two and a half days during April 2010.

REGISTRATION KITS are now available for next year's major world industry event, the 9th World Sheep and Wool Congress, to be held at Rosehill in Sydney from 6 to 9 April.

The congress, endorsed by the Federal Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Tony Burke, and primed with federal government seed money, is gearing up to attract around 1000 international sheep and wool producers and agribusiness delegates.

World sheep and wool congresses are staged in one of the world's sheep producing nations every three years. The most recent congress held in Australia was in Tasmania in 1998.

Congress chair, Roger Fletcher said the finalisation of a vibrant agenda designed to deliver significant value to sheep and wool producers was well underway with around 29 keynote speakers, representing a raft of world-class skills, invited to present at the congress.

“The congress working group is in sponsorship negotiations with a number of national agribusiness companies keen to use the event as a sheep meat and wool industry relationship platform,” he said.

Highlights for Sydney next year will include major presentations on food security, sheep genetics, human health, marketing, traceability technology, the sheep/wool value chain and high-end wool fashions. Three up-and-coming wool and sheep meat producers will also provide the strategies they are using to turn a profit.

International and local delegates will be invited to join pre and post congress tours including visits to regional studs and commercial sheep and wool enterprises, R&D facilities and the renowned National Wool Museum in Geelong.

The congress will take place at the Rosehill Gardens Event Centre over two and a half days and will include presentations run in conjunction with a trade exhibition showcasing innovative products and the latest developments in the wool, sheep meat, fashion and textile design industries.

The big social events program includes:

• Welcome and International Reception
• The Australian Wool Fashion Awards presentation and cocktail reception in association with the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW
• Dinner cruise on picturesque Sydney Harbour
• Tours, field trips and visits to the Sydney Royal Easter Show to watch sheep judging and other arena events.

“I warmly invite sheep meat and wool growers and agribusiness to attend the congress next year,” managing director of sheep meat giant Fletcher International Exports and director of Australian Wool Innovation Limited, Roger Fletcher said.

“The congress is a forum for active discussion and debate regarding the future and opportunities of the sheep meat and wool industries,” he said.

“The aim is to provide an international platform where industry, corporate bodies and other interested parties can unite to learn more about the sheep and wool industries worldwide and for networking by producers and major corporates.”

World Sheep and Wool Congresses have successfully grown to be major global events attracting delegates from more than 14 countries, all with a common interest in sheep meat and wool and associated value chain businesses.
