Accommodation Alert

Registrations will open soon for the grain fed beef industry’s premier technical conference, SmartBeef 2021. It is to be held over two and a half jam-packed days from 19 to 21 October at Dalby Events Centre on Queensland’s Darling Downs. Accommodation is tight, so we are urging delegates to secure their accommodation now.

Presented by the Australian Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA) under the theme of ‘Smarter, Richer Beef’, the program will feature a range of speakers, demonstrations and social events, designed to appeal to participants across the beef supply chain.

SmartBeef 2021 kicks-off on Tuesday, 19 October, from 5.30pm with the Welcome Reception, followed by a full plenary day session on October 20 and will conclude with a Feedlot Tour on October 21.


ALFA has been informed that a number of regional projects will be underway in the area for an extended period bringing additional workforce into the region and placing pressure on local accommodation. So, we are encouraging people to secure their accommodation for the event as soon as possible, so as not to miss out.

We have produced a list of providers in Dalby and surrounds on the SmartBeef website to assist in your search. ALFA has reserved a number of rooms at a selection of these providers and if you quote ‘SmartBeef’ at time of booking these will release reserved rooms to delegates.
