October CEO Round Up

Published 20 October 2023

198 days to go!

What a month it’s been in the Beef Australia office! We saw our early bird tickets launch to members on the 17th, welcomed new staff, sponsors and celebrated some of our recent announcements. 

Early bird tickets

17th of October was an exciting day in the Beef Australia office with our Beef2024 early bird tickets going on sale to members, the earliest Beef Australia tickets have gone on sale in history. It has been great to see many of our social events selling fast and selling out, a testimony to our fantastic beef community. We’ve collated some common FAQ’s, ticketing updates and important dates which have been highlighted across our social media platforms for those looking for regular updates. If you’re looking to secure a spot to a particular social event, register as a member before general public tickets on sale Tuesday 31st October 10am (AEST) and you’ll receive your exclusive ticket link automatically with your confirmation email.
