Horticulture Conference 2022: Insights to Inspire

The theme for next year’s Horticulture Conference is Insights to Inspire. 

‘The New Zealand horticulture industry, like a lot of industries, is under pressure,’ says HortNZ chief executive, Nadine Tunley. 

‘This is due to Covid’s impact on an operating environment that was already challenging, thanks to the speed and volume of Government reform and ongoing labour shortages. 

‘The horticulture industry has an advantage, however, due to the insights it has built up over the past decade of growth and development.’ 

The Horticulture Conference 2022: Insights to Inspire will focus on what our industry can do to shape its future, based on insights developed in the past ten years.  A diverse range of speakers will inspire and offer perspectives from both New Zealand and overseas. 

Next year’s Horticulture Conference is also an opportunity for companies to connect with more than 800 growers, packhouse and supply chain operators, as well as marketing and salespeople from across the fruit and vegetable growing sector. 

In 2022, the conference is being held at Te Pae, Christchurch’s new convention centre.
