As a national event with global reach, E Tipu connects Aotearoa’s food and fibre sector with the world — bringing together remarkable speakers and changemakers to share mind-blowing insights, ignite vital conversations and help shape the future of Aotearoa’s primary industries.
Set for 21-22 June in Ōtautahi Christchurch, E Tipu 2022 features two days of talks from global and local world leaders in food and fibre, plus interactive workshops, expert panels and special Q&As, innovative exhibits, valuable cross-sector networking, and more. The summit is a truly hybrid event — offering an in-person conference in Christchurch and a rich virtual experience for attendees globally through our full-service event platform.
Designed for people from across the food and fibre sector, E Tipu tackles major questions around how we can be more innovative, collaborative, sustainable and profitable — now and into the future.
E Tipu is focused on tangible outcomes. It’s not a talk-fest — it’s about connecting, arming and inspiring changemakers from across sectors for what comes next so they can take specific, positive action the very next day.
E Tipu celebrates diversity to accelerate change. We are an inclusive and accessible summit — offering scholarships and youth rates, and partnering with a broad range of organisations. In collaboration with Ngāi Tūāhuriri, we are committed to bringing all summit aspects to life biculturally — ensuring the indigenous people and culture of Aotearoa are present, loud and proud.
