The All of Government agritech taskforce roadshow is about to hit Hamilton, Lincoln and Tauranga

####

Agritech New Zealand is looking forward to co-hosting the All of Government agritech taskforce roadshow when it visits Hamilton next Monday (26 August), Lincoln on Thursday week (29 August) and Tauranga (Monday 2 September).

This is industry’s opportunity to provide feedback to the taskforce on their strategic thinking about how to support and scale New Zealand’s agritech sector.

I’ll be joined at these workshops by Taskforce lead, David Downs, who will provide an overview of current government thinking. What Agritech New Zealand is seeking to provide is the industry view and these workshops are your chance to have your say.

You can reserve your (free) seat today by registering for these two workshop which take place next week via the links below.

Hamilton: 26 August: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-nz-government-agritech-strategy-consultation-workshop-hamilton-tickets-65383131707

Lincoln: 29 August: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-nz-government-agritech-strategy-consultation-workshop-lincoln-tickets-65383310241

The first two workshops in Palmerston North & Auckland were pretty much ‘sold out’ with great input from the 120 delegates who attended. We captured all that feedback and it will go a long way to help develop key actions and initiatives going forward. We already have over 120 people registered for the two workshops next week. I very much hope you can join us.

The final workshop is due to take place in Tauranga on Monday 2 September. Tickets for this event, taking place at the Classic Flyers Museum, are already flying (pardon the pun) out of the door. If you have not registered yet, you can reserve your seat today.

The taskforce is now made up of representatives from 6 government agencies. At the conclusion of the current roadshow, Agritech New Zealand will sit down with the team to help identify real actions that government can take to support the sector. This initiative, which is being driven at multi-Ministerial level, is one that we totally support. We hope you can join us over the next two weeks to help provide input into the key actions and initiatives we should take.
