Australian Pulse Conference 2016
Feed the Farm, Feed the World – Save the Date!
The success of the inaugural PBA Pulse Conference held in 2013, and attended by almost 200 delegates, inspired the PBA partners to ensure that the conference continues to be inclusive of all the pulse community, hence the Australian Pulse Conference (APC) has been born.
