It’s hard to believe that the Australia leg of the pre-2035 Oceania Summit workshops ends in Sydney tomorrow.

The last two and a half weeks have been a blast. I’ve had the opportunity to meet a large number of really focused AgriFoodTech and ClimateTech professionals looking to support farmers and growers meet the climate change challenge. In both ACT & South Australia, there are strategies being put in place which bring research, industry and government together. The workshops in both Canberra & the Adelaide Hills, (photograph taken above), reflected the significant progress that is being made in terms of both research and industry application.

I’m really looking forward to welcoming a number of these organisations and individuals to Auckland in October. We are actively working with AgriFutures Australia and the team at growAG to build a major Australian Zone in the Aotea Centre at the 2035 Oceania Summit. It will provide an opportunity for New Zealand and international delegates to identify opportunities for partnership & collaboration.

Tomorrow, we are hosting our final pre-2035 Oceania Summit workshop at Cicada Innovations here in Sydney. We are just 10 seats short of another sell-out crowd. It’s a fantastic line-up of speakers & panellists. For more details of the day’s agenda and to register your free seat, please go to Pre-2035 Oceania Summit 1/2 day workshop – Sydney Tickets, Tue 10/05/2022 at 8:30 AM | Eventbrite

For anyone who thinks that ZOOM & Teams can substitute the impact of in-person meetings, I have a message. Over the past two and a half weeks, we’ve managed to make more progress in supporting trans-Tasman engagement in this space that at any point over the past two years.

Thanks Australia. You have been awesome!
