WORLD-LEADER IN AGRI-FOOD-TECH
More than 250 people register their interest within 48 hours of the launch of the 2035 Oceania Summit in Auckland 2022, which aims to showcase local solutions for global climate impact.
New Zealand is embracing its role as a world leader in agri-food-tech with the launch of a new event, the 2035 Oceania Summit in Auckland.
The regional follow-up summit will draw on the experience of New Zealand-based global agri-food-tech consultancy Wharf42, which will co-host the AgriFoodTech Climate Summit at COP26 in Glasgow in November.
The 2035 Oceania Summit event was launched during Fieldays 2021 in New Zealand, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agricultural event. Within 48 hours of the announcement, more than 250 people had registered their interest on the Summit’s landing page, a very positive indicator, Wren-Hilton says.
The event has the support of Tourism New Zealand’s Business Events team, Auckland Unlimited, AgriTech New Zealand, and the Australian AgriTech Association. Wren-Hilton is currently undertaking a roadshow around New Zealand to secure the involvement of other key players in the agrifood ecosystem.
Tourism New Zealand General Manager Domestic & Business Events, Bjoern Spreitzer says: “Hosting this event not only positions New Zealand as a global leader in agritech and agrifood expertise; it opens opportunities for further research and investment that will benefit our local farmers, local economy, and local environment in the longer term.”
Wren-Hilton hopes to attract 1000 local and international delegates to the two-day Oceania Summit, which will take place in Auckland in April 2022. It will feature regional and international keynote speakers, breakout panels, an exhibition showcasing current research being undertaken across the region, a startup hub with a pitch event to global investors, as well as extensive networking opportunities.
He says: “If the borders are open, we’re hoping to attract delegates from around the world to come and share what is happening in this important space.”
