We regret to inform you that following the review and full consideration of the circumstances and information available to us, as well as engagement with our stakeholders, CEDA has made the difficult decision to postpone New Zealand AgriFood Week until further notice in light of COVID-19.
This means that we will not be holding ASB Perspective 2025 or the MPI Provenance Breakfast this Wednesday.
The decision follows an extensive review of the facts, the Ministry of Health guidelines and our partner and stakeholder views. The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving and in order to minimise the spread of this pandemic in our communities and to prevent unnecessary strain on our health systems, CEDA has decided that postponement of New Zealand AgriFood Week is the safest course of action. With attendees coming from across New Zealand and the globe, the decision to postpone the Week was made to protect the wellbeing of all involved and our communities.
Naming sponsor ASB fully supports the decision, with ASB Executive General Manager of Business Banking Tim Deane saying the decision had not been made lightly, however it was the right one.
We will be in touch regarding ticket refunds and next steps in the coming days.
The Ministry of Health and MidCentral DHB are leading the response to COVID-19, for current COVID-19 advice, people are encouraged to visit the Ministry of Health website
ASB Perspective 2025
We’ve successfully sold ‘brand New Zealand’ to the world – now how can we practically bring it home to enhance our sector’s future?
Six female leaders, nationally and globally renowned for their work and contribution to the primary industries and food value chain, will gather to answer this question and more.
Refreshed for 2020, this popular event will now take the form of a unique ‘boardroom’ style discussion, giving the audience a first-hand glimpse into their purposeful, stimulating conversation. Together these leaders will address how we can continue to build pride, excitement and awareness of what’s happening within New Zealand to our own communities, government and investors.
Attendees will walk away with insights into the future of our industries, inspired to implement the thought-provoking ideas and actions the discussion generates.
