For the Begonia event attendees are being asked to bring a plate for smoko, with lunch being provided by the Begonia Sports Club. We ask that attendees from your organisation might make a small cash donation to the Begonia Sports Club to cover the cost of catering. There will be refreshments after the presentations to finish off the day.
We are anticipating the overall attendance to be 100+, with an emphasis put on encouraging as many attendees as possible, including, producers, government departments, agencies, organisations and agribusinesses to attend the day, so that those who attend have access to as many people as possible on the day, to ask questions of, make suggestions to and generally communicate with.
Should you wish to set up a table and promote your organisation, you are more than welcome to, there will be tables and chairs, the rest will be up to you to organise. If you do intend to do something like this can I ask that you get there early to setup.
