AARES Annual Conferences

Each year, AARES organises an annual conference which is normally held in February. The aim of these events is to promote the profession of agricultural and resource economics in Australia and other countries, and to foster – in all sections of the economy – interest in and understanding of the economic issues affecting primary industries, resources and the environment.


Venue: Set on the banks of the iconic Yarra River, the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is just a short walk away from the city centre, providing the ideal starting place to uncover Melbourne’s world-famous laneways, restaurants, galleries and boutiques.

Program: The local organising committee and the incoming AARES President have created an exciting program. The 2019 conference in Melbourne will be a prime opportunity to connect, share knowledge and collaborate.

The annual conference with associated workshops occurs in February of each year. The program will consist of keynote addresses by distinguished speakers, paper sessions, research reviews of current trends and issues, and alternative format sessions.

The Conference represents an outstanding opportunity for delegates to network, share ideas and hear from some of the foremost experts in the field.
