Primary Industries New Zealand

Outlook. Analysis. Prediction.

The inaugural Primary Industries New Zealand Summit welcomed over 300 representatives from across the primary industries’ value chain to Te Papa to:

  • Hear key analysis and expert insight informing the outlook for a sustainable future
  • Facilitate openings for high-level collaboration across the commercial and primary sectors and conversations centred around issues close to the hearts of our primary producers
  • Showcase the best of New Zealand’s primary industries on a national stage

The Summit featured an exceptional national and international speaker line up who delivered thought-provoking presentations and discussions and created an unrivaled platform for networking and connection. It was the ultimate gathering of the primary industries, and also an evening of celebration at the Primary Industries NZ Gala Dinner and Awards.
