Event description

Description

The 2017 apple & pear conference is focused on challenging and disrupting industry thinking about what the future may hold.

The industry has come a long way since deregulation in 2001, and over the past four years or so has experienced record growth in volume and value. But is continuing to do what we are doing already enough or do we do we need to reflect on and prepare for the rapid pace of change across our supply chain.

This year’s conference will look at why we need to change our thinking if we are to survive as an industry, and examine some of the areas where change is likely to be most significant.

Day one will look at the need to disrupt our thinking, and explore such topics as changing consumer and retail demand, patterns, preferences and habits; how data will change the way consumers purchase; and how a changing climate and environmental profile will impact on how we farm and on pests, diseases and biosecurity.

Day two will look at where innovation, technology, marketing and research & development intersect and how this fits with the consumers of the future; the future of apple and pear production; how technology is reshaping the future in our industry; and where GMO fits into that future.

The cocktail reception and gala dinner will again be an excellent networking opportunity and chance to recognise the recipient of this year’s Pipfruit New Zealand Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry.

Informative speakers and relevant and interesting topics make this conference a must for industry and our sector partners.

We look forward to seeing you in Napier in August.
