Beef Australia, the premier event celebrating the Australian beef community, is pleased to announce ANZ as its first official multi-event Principal Partner.

Beef Australia CEO Simon Irwin said ANZ’s continued support of Beef Australia highlights its commitment to the agricultural industry and its recognition of the vital role Beef Australia events play in the Australian economy.

“ANZ have been long-standing supporters of Beef Australia, dating back to the event’s inception in 1988, Mr Irwin said.

“Announcing ANZ as a Principal Partner of Beef Australia not only showcases their commitment to the upcoming 2024 event, but also the 2027 event.

“Their expertise and commitment to the beef sector aligns perfectly with our vision in showcasing the beef community, informing consumers, facilitating trade and advancing knowledge through education, training and innovation.

“Having ANZ as a partner of Beef Australia 2024 will bring enormous value to the event and the wider beef industry.

“While work on ANZ’s program of events is still underway, this long-term partnership between Beef Australia and ANZ promises to elevate the 2024 event to new heights, providing valuable insights, connections, and opportunities for everyone involved”.

ANZ Head of Agribusiness Mark Bennett said ANZ is proud to commit as Principal Partner for 2024 and 2027. 

“Given our long-term commitment to the sector, it makes sense to lock in our support for the most anticipated event in the beef industry”, Mr Bennett said.

“Beef 2024 creates invaluable learning and networking opportunities for the industry, in what is an incredible showcase of Queensland hospitality and entertainment.

“The beef industry makes a significant contribution to the Australian economy, with Gross Value of Production of around $14bn, including export revenues of around $10bn.

“ANZ looks forward to working with its customers and network, throughout the entire supply chain, on the challenges and opportunities ahead”.
