We are so excited to be bringing you an update on our much anticipated biannual event in April of 2023. 

Our theme for the upcoming summit will be "POWER THE FUTURE"

From 4 - 5 April 2023, Rural Edge is hosting its hugely popular event for a fourth time - the INSPIRE Summit, at The Ritz Carlton in Perth for over 300 rural women & men. This event strongly supports the industry’s focus on sustainable businesses and growth. Well managed farm businesses in turn improve the economies of rural and regional areas. The skills required to run a farm business also transfer across to business and leadership skills for small communities and regional industries.

New technologies, efficient business practices and enhancing industry relationships bring opportunities, but each of these practices require skills development to encourage their uptake. INSPIRE is an opportunity to invest in a proven program that provides on farm value to WA growers and is strongly supported by key players within WA’s agricultural banking and advisory sector.

We have already bought onboard many exciting sponsors, key note speakers and panel members who will all be announced in the near future, to make this our best conference to date.
