THE CLIENTS

PIX is one of the largest, most extensive trade exhibition in Australia, providing an exciting social program and numerous workshops for producers and technical staff alike.

ATMA was established in 1963 and has continued to build by reassessing the needs of members with a long term focus of matters relevant to the good of the technical milling profession. FIAAA is an association formed in late 2010 to provide a forum for suppliers of feed ingredients and additives. SFMCA represents feed milling companies throughout Australia. Its members manufacture over 5,500,000 tonnes of feed annually; this is principally feed which is supplied to commercial poultry, pig, beef, dairy, sheep, horse, aquaculture and household livestock producers.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

This is a biennial conference and the fourth time PIX and AMC have come together. It is the biggest and most important poultry and milling conference in the region, attracting delegates from Australia, New Zealand and countries in the South Pacific and South East Asia.

It was the 28th time PIX has been held, and enjoys the reputation of being the premier Australian industry event of the poultry industry calendar. AMC 2018 was the 15th conference and drew delegates from flour and feed milling companies as well as many service providers.

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

The conference started with an exhibition-only day on Sunday, followed by the official conference opening on Monday with a combined PIX and AMC plenary session and then divided into separate PIX and AMC sessions. PIX held two post-conference workshops.

All speakers were invited by the committee.

The social program kicked off with concurrent but separate PIX and AMC welcome dinners. The following night, the guests came together for a combined dinner and then a joint breakfast session on the last day.

THE ROLE OF ICE AUSTRALIA

This is the second conference managed by ICE Australia, having worked with PIX and AMC since 2015. ICE Australia was involved in all elements of the conference, including the sourcing and contracting of the conference venue. The exception was some of the dinner entertainment and theming, which were sourced by the client as was their preference. ICE Australia was responsible for sourcing other supplier quotes and managed the conference budget, with an updated copy presented to the client on a monthly basis.

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS

  • The number of attendees recorded this year was the highest yet.
  • The conference exhibition was 20% larger than 2016’s and was a sell-out with an exhibitor waitlist.
  • Despite the 2016 conference had the highest recorded attendance then, the conference this year surpassed all targets both in registration as well as partnership and exhibition with the latter exceeding $1 million.
