List of sponsors
We continue negotiations with AQIS and have been able to arrange unique provisions for overseas vendors coming to this conference.  Some vendors will have pre-quarantine within their own facilities and providing plants are clean on arrival, they will be sold without further restriction.  Where vendors do not have this approval, vendors have a choice of quarantine prior to the conference or selling plants to then go into quarantine at a facility we have contracted for the conference.  Thus we will have access to overseas plants in numbers not seen previously.  There will be the usual wide array of flasks available from local and overseas sources.
