This year’s Australian Cider Conference officially opens in Batlow, New South Wales this Thursday as Batlow prepares to welcome thousands of cider enthusiasts to the region for its annual cider festivities. 

Bringing together an expert line-up of Australian and international speakers, AusCider 2022 offers a unique mix of technical, business and sensory cider education.

President of Cider Australia and co-owner of LOBO Cider Warwick Billings said the organisation is pleased to have secured retail marketing and horticulture expert John Stanley as a keynote speaker and workshop lead. 

“Participants have the opportunity to tour the Wilgro orchard and cidery in Batlow and participate in John’s interactive workshop The Devil is in the Detail that will drill down into the strategies needed to successfully develop new ideas in 2022 and beyond”, said Warwick.

The conference program also includes a dinner, supplier showcase and a full day of conference sessions enabling participants to meet, connect and engage with industry leaders and influencers or the first time since early 2020.

Tickets are available until midnight via Eventbrite.
