May. 27 — 28, 2020 | Hawke's Bay
The 2020 Summerfruit NZ conference has been cancelled. The restrictions on gatherings, and the various limitations that government and businesses are placing on travel, has meant that Summerfruit NZ has decided to cancel the 2020 summerfruit industry conference.
The Board decision was unanimous, reflecting both the uncertainty, and the need to act in the best interests of our growers, speakers, delegates, and sponsors. Our thanks to MG Marketing, our platinum sponsor, for their continued financial support, and their support for this decision.
Alternative options for the Annual General Meeting will be explored. We are conscious that our May conference was intended to give growers feedback on the industry review outcomes, and assure you that this work will progress. We will look at other mechanisms to engage with growers, as the unfolding situation demands.
