The 42nd ASSCT conference will be held in Bundaberg April 2020 at the Multiplex Convention Centre - providing a valuable industry technology forum. In 2020, Sugar Tuesday will be staged on Tuesday 21st April with demonstration of new technologies, informal discussions around technology application and practical modifications to farm machinery and an interactive panel session with the leaders who are taking our industry to new and exciting future directions. This information day exploits the opportunity provided by the gathering of leading technologists from around the country - and promises to provide an even better value proposition for those attending the conference. The ASSCT conference will remain the pinnacle of the week. It is hoped that Sugar Week will continue to develop, providing greater opportunity for industry technologists and industry personnel in general to interact in areas not directly related to the reporting of research results. More information on Sugar Tuesday will be available on the ASSCT website at a later date.
