E Tipu 2022: The Boma Agri Summit

Tue 21, Wed 22 June 2022, NZST

Following the success of its E Tipu 2021 summit comes Boma New Zealand’s E Tipu 2022: The Boma Agri Summit, ‘connecting Aotearoa’s food and fibre sector with the world’.

The two-day event, taking place in Christchurch and online, brings together leading speakers and change-makers to share insights, ignite important discussions  and help shape the future of primary industries across New Zealand and beyond.

E Tipu 2021 had 38 world-class speakers, innovative partners and hundreds of attendees from across the world to tackle key questions facing our food and fibre sector. This year’s iteration, promise its organisers, will be ‘bigger and bolder’, with talks from global agrifood leaders, interactive workshops, expert panels and special Q&As, innovative exhibits, cross-sector networking and more.

More than a mere ‘talk-fest’, E Tipu is ‘about connecting, arming and inspiring changemakers across Aotearoa’s primary industries and beyond for what comes next — so they can take specific, positive action’. One example: After challenging Venues Ōtautahi to source 80 per cent of its produce for E Tipu 2021 locally, Executive Chef Dan Shanks spearheaded a local procurement model for all Venues Ōtautahi events, putting more than $1 million back into the Canterbury economy in 2020 alone.

A truly hybrid event

The summit runs from 9am NZST (2 hrs ahead of AEST) on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 June 2022.

It is supported by Host City Partner ChristchurchNZ, and is a truly hybrid event. Running in parallel to the in-person conference in Christchurch, on New Zealand’s South Island, is a rich virtual experience for attendees globally conducted via a full-service event platform.
