Australian cider conference returns to Batlow
The Australian cider industry’s annual information exchange and networking conferenceAusCider 2022will be held in Batlow, New South Wales on 19-20 May.
Hosted by industry body Cider Australia, the conference connects cider producers, fruit growers, researchers, suppliers and others in the cider community from Australia and overseas.
Warwick Billings, President of Cider Australia, said the twice-postponed conference will focus on how craft cideries can scale up with integrity, with the conference program to be released next week.
“After such a long hiatus, we can’t wait to bring everyone together in the place where the conference was founded ten years ago”, said Warwick.
The conference leads into Batlow’s annual CiderFest on Saturday 21 May, a bustling celebration of Australian craft cider set among a blaze of autumn colours.
Chair of the Batlow CiderFest Committee Richard Breward said the community is gearing up to welcome thousands of people to Batlow for the CiderFest and Bushfire Recovery Sunday the following day.
Richard said, “Confirmation that the conference will be held in Batlow is really the icing on the cake”.
AusCider 2022 is proudly sponsored by Lallemand, Winequip, Midland Insurance and Konvoy Kegs and is supported by the Batlow CiderFest Committee and the Department of Primary Industries New South Wales.
