2016 Asparagus Council Conference

This year the NZAC conference will be held directly after the AGM.

Hosted by the Hawke’s Bay Assocation, this year’s event will be held at East Pier Hotel.

We have an interesting lineup of speakers including MPI representatives, and Angela Halliday from HortNZ who will talk about her recent survey into the current and future priorities of growers. You can see the raw data from her survey here.

East Pier was built on the site of an old fish factory in 1992 to be a top quality waterfront bar and brasserie and over the next decade established itself as the area’s leading and most popular venue.

Since the turn of the millennium East Pier has also earned the reputation as one of Hawke’s Bay’s leading wedding and conference centres attracting large glamorous weddings and regional, national, and international conferences on a weekly basis.

Why not make the most of the corporate rate we have arranged with East Pier hotel and plan a weekend in the Hawke’s Bay, and allow yourself time to explore all the region has to offer. Accommodation is to be arranged directly with the hotel. If you wish to take up this offer please know that availability is limited.

More information including programme and ideas of activities in the area will be sent to all registered attendees closer to the date.

Please send a completed form to Eve Williams to register your attendance at the conference.

If you have any questions please get in touch with Eve on or 0212545830.
