Sponsorship & Exhibition Launch

Sponsorship provides the opportunity to reach a large number of national and international delegates primarily within the horticulture research community. A number of sponsorship opportunities are available for organisations that are interested in making their mark on IHC 2014.

Exhibition will also be a major component of the Congress and will feature the most up to date information and products available. The Congress Program has been designed to maximise the opportunity for delegates to visit the exhibition.

The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre is a world-class purpose-built congress venue, renowned for its operational and service excellence. The Centre is located in a unique urban cultural and entertainment precinct in the heart of Brisbane known as South Bank. For a preview of the venue, as well as the surrounding areas, please watch the short video available on the website.



South Bank is set in a lush, subtropical riverfront parkland; a destination offering a truly dynamic urban lifestyle and appealing retail precinct; a showcase of Queensland’s diverse range of artistic abilities and a host to one of the world’s most important collections of indigenous art.

Located on a one kilometre stretch of the Brisbane River, visitors can enjoy the only sand and swimming beach in the heart of an Australian City. A diverse range of attractions line the Southbank river region including beautiful rainforest walks, rock climbing adventures, performing arts and street theatre, an array of international restaurants, cafes and bars. Opera, symphony and first class shopping adventures aspire to all tastes.
