The 2035 Oceania Summit, which will take place from 10-11 October at Aotea Centre in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. The event is expected to raise discussions, find solutions and drive long-term impact on matters of climate change, digitalisation and food security in the agrifood sector. The focus of the delegates from all over the world will be on how to support farmers and growers to reduce emissions to net zero and build more resilient growing systems.
More than 40 national and international speakers, breakout panels, an exhibition showcasing current research being undertaken across the region, a start-up hub and extensive networking opportunities will make for an interesting event. The meeting has the support of Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, Tourism New Zealand’s Business Events team, AgriTech New Zealand, and the Australian AgriTech Association.
Pam Ford, Tātaki Auckland Unlimited Director of Investment and Industry, says: “As the world looks for ways to transform global food systems to address climate change and food insecurity, fostering connections such as those at Oceania 2035 is vital. Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s agri-food-tech sector, with its strong research and development expertise, has a lot to contribute and we look forward to welcoming the international agri-tech community to our region to share ideas and collaborate.”
