Case IH StepUP! 2020 Conference has been postponed!


The Next Gen committee regrets to inform that the Case IH StepUP! 2020 Conference scheduled to take place in Bundaberg, on 24-25 March 2020 will be postponed to early 2021, date to be announced soon.

It was a difficult decision to make but one which we had weighed up carefully. This decision comes after the unforeseen announcement from the Australian Government advising against large gatherings and avoiding non-essential travel due to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

In addition, key conference participants have had to withdraw their attendance due to corporate travel restrictions, as well as one of presenter having to be quarantined. For the safety of everyone involved, the decision to postpone the conference is the best one to make at this point.

However, it is our intention to roll over all registrations, sponsorship and trade stall exhibitors to 2021. We hope that you will keep a look out for future information and advertising relating to next year’s event,

Next Gen would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors, exhibitors and registered delegates for their support to date. We look forward to seeing you all next year for a bigger and better event.

About Next Gen Harvesting the Next Generation

The Next Gen program has been developed in response to a major challenge the sugar cane industry is facing regarding its main asset: the next generation.

The industry has identified a need to encourage and support younger participants into a career in agriculture, specifically in the sugar cane industry.

This challenge is across all aspects of the sugar industry; farming, harvesting, extension, research and milling. It is also important to ensure the more established participants are encouraged to transfer the wealth of their knowledge to the incoming generation.
