Primary Industries New Zealand Summit & Awards

This event is not run by an association in the Tech Alliance, but may be of interest to some members.

The Primary Industries New Zealand Summit is now less than a month away.

Featuring a wealth of inspiring speakers and industry leaders, the Summit tackles the big issues the whole of the primary sector is grappling with, as it strives to transition to the future.  Particularly workforce issues, freshwater and of course, climate change.

With the Climate Change Commission’s final report just released, we are fortunate to be featuring a presentation from Professor Nicola Shadbolt, Commissioner, Climate Change Commission & Chair, Plant and Food Research & Professor of Farm & AgriBusiness Management at Massey University. Whether you agree with the Commission’s recommendations or not, the Summit provides a fantastic opportunity to come together with others from across the sector to develop a workable roadmap to growing a sustainable, productive future for the industry.
