Event description


**What is Grow 2019?**

A two-day, action-packed event, featuring the latest information on future farming trends, exponential change, new business models and product pathways impacting the food and fibre sector across New Zealand.

Our vision is to help Aotearoa’s food and fibre sector become more innovative, sustainable, collaborative,and profitable, now and into the future.

Grow 2019 is not your run-of-the-mill conference. This summit is designed to empower you to take tangible action, so you leave ready for what comes next.

**Who should attend?**

Grow 2019 has been created to bring together people who work across New Zealand’s entire food and fibre sector, from the start of the supply chain to the finished products.

If you’re a farmer, producer, innovator, researcher, educator, student, government or finance worker looking at how to grow Aotearoa’s agriculture industry amidst exponential changes, you won’t want to miss this event.

**What will you learn?**

You’ll learn about the future trends that are impacting the agriculture sector and what to do about them—not based on marketing fluff, but on practical experience from people on the ground.

You’ll connect with a group of like-minded individuals and organisations who are working to help Aotearoa’s food and fibre sector to understand, adapt, and grow in a future that looks nothing like the today.

We won’t just share what’s coming—we’ll connect you with case studies from credible people on who’s tried it, what worked, what didn’t, what’s temporary, and what’s going to be sustainable into the future.
