Nuffield2020 International Conference and Triennial
There is now just over three months until New Zealand hosts the Nuffield2020 International Conference and Triennial. Thank you for all your support in helping to promote this event. We are very excited about the programme we have put together with lots of fantastic visits, speakers and experiences for our delegates and partners. The numbers registered have already exceeded our expectations. We still have plenty of room for more people to attend and we’d love to have as many New Zealanders join us as possible. So if you are still thinking about attending all or part of the conference there are lots of options available over the 11 day programme. View the programme here.
Nuffield International Agribusiness Summit
The Nuffield International Agribusiness Summit programme is being regularly updated with new speakers. As the Summit is open to the wider agri-sector, we hope that you can continue to promote this fast paced one day event to your wider networks.
Check out our great line up speakers at the Summit.
