The Victorian Government is proud to support Food+Wine Victoria to deliver the inaugural Global Table – a one-of-a-kind, agri-food business event for the Asia-Pacific region.
Set to launch in September 2019, Global Table will be Australia's largest food and beverage expo ever, anticipated to attract more than 5000 participants.
Presented over four bumper days, and all under the one roof, the expo will focus on the full food supply-chain, and will bring together global leaders and influencers from across their field. Global Table will connect Australia’s agri-food industry with the rest of the world through a series of internationally focussed, interactive business events, including conferences, workshops, direct business matching and regional business site visits.
