Australian Market Immersion 2023
Event dates: 15 Feb – 22 Feb 2023
We're taking a delegation of New Zealand companies to South Australia in the lead up to evokeAG.
Our intention is to spend valuable time in-market to engage with local growers, innovators, researchers and investors to help them better understand the opportunities for their products and services.
We are running a number of events and hope you can join us for this amazing experience. All the details you need are below, and if you have any questions, drop me a note: [email protected]
See you in Adelaide!
