The Victorian Government is seeking applications from export-ready Victorian food and beverage organisations to participate as official Victorian Exhibitors at Global Table 2019, taking place in Melbourne from 3 to 6 September 2019.

We've extended the Expression on Interest registration until 31 July 2019.

What is Global Table?

Global Table is a dynamic new business event that connects global industry leaders, innovators, corporates and governments who are committed to transforming the food industry towards a more sustainable future through trade, investment and innovation.

Taking place over three bumper days this September, Global Table will bring together Australia’s agri-food industry and connect them with the rest of the world through a series of internationally focussed and interactive business events, including conferences, workshops, direct business matching and regional business site visits.

Emerging and export-ready Australian exhibitors in the categories of dairy, meat, grocery line, grains and baking, and non-alcoholic beverages are encouraged to take part in what will be Australia's biggest agribusiness event to showcase their innovation and expertise.

Please note that Global Table 2019 will not include producers from alcoholic beverages or fresh horticulture in the Trade Zone.

Why exhibit at the Trade Zone?

The Victorian Government will host a Victorian Trade Zone at the trade show to support eligible Victorian organisations to exhibit.

Victorian Exhibitors will have the opportunity to showcase their products at the Global Table Trade Zone and connect to new opportunities with international buyers and visitors attending the Expo.

The Victorian Government is offering a subsidy of up to $2200 for approved and qualified Victorian exhibitors. Places for the subsidy are limited though and will be distributed as a first-come, first-served basis. See below for more details.

Eligibility, terms and conditions

Applications will be subject to an approval process and participation will be at the discretion of the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR).
