From October, New Zealand will re-engage with the international conference circuit as travel restrictions are lifted and the primary sector will be among the first to do so with the AgriFood-Tech 2035 Oceanic Summit.

The conference’s focus is on the critical role agri-food technology will play in helping the region achieve its net-zero carbon goals, also lifting the productivity of food production systems and building resilience in the face of climate change.

As a key sponsor of the event GlobalHQ, publishers of Farmers Weekly and Dairy Farmer, will be profiling the key speakers, scientific advances and investment opportunities being presented at the conference.

Conference organiser Peter Wren-Hilton says the event is modelled off the highly successful evokeAG conference last held in Melbourne in early 2020.

The two-day event offers an opportunity not only for discussion, but for agritech startups to connect with customers and potential funders.

“In this sense it steps well beyond a conventional conference model, with a focus on breakout and plenary sessions all revolving around a recognition that it is the platform for delivering outcomes that will impact on how food is produced globally,” Wren-Hilton said.

Agri-Food Tech 2035 Oceania Summit will be held in Auckland from October 10-11. To learn more, visit the website
