AGMARDT has signed on as the exclusive Foundation Partner for the E Tipu IFAMA 2023 World Conference and E Tipu 2024: The Boma Agri Summit.
Having partnered since the launch of the conference in 2019, AGMARDT said the new partnership directly ties to its objective of investing in initiatives that encourage innovative thinking, research and collaboration, and highlight emerging leaders in New Zealand’s primary sector.
Another alignment is AGMARDT’s focus on including farmers and growers in the conversation by offering farmers a 50% savings on tickets right until the conference starts.
Through talks from global and local primary sector leaders, expert panels, action-oriented workshops and Q&As, E Tipu said, the Global Forum component of E Tipu IFAMA 2023 will help strengthen understanding of future food and fibre trends to ensure primary sector leaders can focus on the “big things” that count.
AGMARDT general manager Lee-Ann Marsh said she is looking forward to interacting with and hearing the views of the farmers and growers who’ll be attending E Tipu.
“It’s just as important, if not more so, for them [farmers and growers] to attend this event — not only so they can understand the future opportunities and challenges first hand but to be actively part of the conversations on how we shape our future and move forward together, ” she said.
Boma founder and CEO Kaila Colbin said she is grateful to work with a kaupapa-aligned organisation like AGMARDT.
“Both of our organisations are radically focused on how we can be of service, supporting our food and fibre sectors to be more innovative, collaborative, sustainable and profitable. We look forward to growing our impact together,” she said.
