What you’ll learn
Turbocharge the Farm
New Models and Collaboration
Bridging the Gap
You’ll learn about the future trends that are impacting the food and fibre sector and what to do about them—not based on marketing fluff, but on practical experience from people on the ground.
You’ll connect with a group of like-minded individuals and organisations who are working to help Aotearoa’s primary industries to understand, adapt, and grow in a future that looks nothing like the today.
We won’t just share what’s coming—we’ll connect you with case studies from credible people on who’s tried it, what worked, what didn’t, what’s temporary, and what’s going to be sustainable into the future.
Who should attend
Grow 2019 is designed to bring together people who work across New Zealand’s entire food and fibre sector, from the start of the supply chain to the finished products.
If you’re a farmer, producer, innovator, researcher, educator, student, government or finance worker looking at how to grow Aotearoa’s agriculture industry amidst exponential changes, you won’t want to miss this event.
