Ministry for Primary Industries
Shed 6 and TSB Arena, Wellington
Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) hosted this one-day event, which encompassed the following:
- Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) Programmes Annual Meeting
- Shaping New Zealand’s Food and Fibre Future Conference
- Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) programmes Exhibition and Networking Expo
The event had grown over the years and tenders were sourced to manage the logistics of the event. With a short lead in time, the programme was established to look 10 - 20 years into the future and consider how New Zealand’s primary industries can prepare for the challenges and opportunities this brings.
The 21 programmes exhibiting all had individual requirements, from lamb being cooked on a BBQ indoors, to pizzas being cooked in the correct ovens onsite at the venue and getting approval to use the exhibitors own mozzarella.
It was a full on day, but the delegates went away having networked, debated, participated and learned about New Zealand food and fibre future.
