E Tipu: The Boma Agri Summit | Christchurch + Virtual | 21–22 June 2022

About this event

E Tipu: The Boma Agri Summit is set to catalyse the future in 2022.

“If you attend one agri conference in order to accelerate positive change, make it this one.”
“An inspirational and horizon-broadening experience which kept me engaged for the entire two days.”

Join us at Aotearoa's biggest food and fibre sector summit

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.

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 2022 is a truly hybrid event — offering an in-person summit at Christchurch Town Hall as well as a virtual experience for attendees across Aotearoa and globally.

“A wonderful, future-focused, pan-sector event. The app made it very interactive. The speakers were world-class.”
“Highly relevant, well-attended, professional, incredibly inspiring!”
