Horticulture is the primary industries’ quiet achiever - expanding, growing and meeting global consumer demands for healthy food. Growers play a valuable role in the New Zealand economy, both at a local level as producers, employers and food suppliers to New Zealanders, and with exports, which have increased by 40 percent in the two years from June 2014 to 2016. Today, 60 percent of what we grow in New Zealand is exported.

The horticulture conference is the annual opportunity for industry to get together and share ideas, learn about innovation to improve their business, hear inspirational and influential speakers, connect and socialise. It is the place to be.
