12th Fumigants & Pheromones Conference
MARCH 7–9, 2016
Organized by Insects Limited, USA – Australian Fumigation, South Australia – Fumigation Service & Supply, Inc., USA
Adelaide is the host city for the 12th Fumigants & Pheromones Conference and Workshop and it is the perfect place and the perfect time of year for this conference and workshop.
The three venues for this international conference are the new Adelaide Conference Center, the InterContinental Hotel – Adelaide and the newly refurbished Adelaide Oval, a world-class cricket stadium. Adelaide is a vibrant city where everything is within 20 minutes. It is also the gateway to some of the finest vineyards in the world. Over 175 vineyards surround this city of about one million people where kangaroos and koalas roam wild. The Adelaide Arts Festival, Fringe, and the Womad Music Festival take place in “Mad March” in downtown Adelaide during the 12th Fumigants & Pheromones Conference. From international events to pop-up festivals, there is always something to do in Adelaide. For more information about Adelaide go to: http://www.southaustralia.com/regions/adelaidecity.
March is an ideal time to leave the grey cold weather of the Northern hemisphere and go down-under. Adelaide has warm dry days during March where the South Ocean beaches are just 20 minutes away. The conference in 2016 will be held at the brand new Adelaide Conference Center just steps away from the host InterContinental Hotel. The two-day educational program of practical experiences will feature well known experts from around the world. The Gala Dinner will be held at the Adelaide Oval, the home of cricket since 1871, and just across the river from the conference venue. Dinner will be served at mid field while learning the history of one of Australia’s favorite sports. The third day will be the ‘Walk About Workshop’, which will be an opportunity to discuss the various topics of conference speakers with the speakers themselves. The workshop will take place at a nearby winery a short bus ride from the conference center and will wrap up at the Cleland Wildlife Park where many of Australia’s most loveable native animals walk freely about.
What sets this conference apart from others is that it features practical and proven hands-on topics from around the world, expert speakers, and the exchange of knowledge in a casual setting like no other conference.
