AbacusBio will be holding its second Queenstown Agribusiness Symposium in March 2015, providing an opportunity for New Zealand meat exporters and producers, amongst others, to gain insights into developing their business to maximise export growth.
It follows the first symposium, held in 2013, and will again be facilitated by leading international agribusiness academics: the director of Harvard’s Business School’s Agribusiness Program, Mary Shelman; and the professor of marketing and associate dean at ECD Michael Smurfit Graduate business School, Ireland, Professor Damien P McLoughlin.
AbacusBio says it was inspired to underwrite the Queenstown Agribusiness Symposium to give New Zealand companies access to inspiring development ideas after two of its directors attended similar courses overseas.
AbacusBio partner Anna Campbell says global and local real-life business case-studies are the basis for the symposium. This ensures active learning and allows participation of all levels of agribusiness from business leaders, through to those in marketing, finance, logistics, farmers and agribusiness suppliers.
She says its a great time for agribusiness with demand outpacing supply in much of the world. she believes New Zealand’s location close to the Asia-Pacific market means with scale, differentiation and alignment companies can maximise growth.
The Queenstown Agribusiness Symposium will be held 24-27 March 2015. There is an early bird discount until 15 December 2015. Find out more at www.queenstownagribusiness.co.nz.
