What our growers have to say about the mango conference:


“The 2015 Mango Conference held in Darwin was the first mango conference we had attended.
We had the best time interacting with everyone in the mango industry, forming friendships and enjoying an unforgettable event. The presentations, displays and speakers were all of high standard. Thanks to the dedicated AMIA team for holding such an informative and entertaining event.
We look forward to attending this year’s conference and encourage all to attend and support a
wonderful event.”
