We bring our industry together through our annual conference, SHED meetings, technical seminars and business workshops. We keep our members informed and up to date through our member newsletters and our biosecurity and science updates.
NZ Plant Producers runs a range of the events throughout the year - including some exclusive member-only events.
The annual Plant Producers Conference is the only national get-together for commercial plant nursery owners, managers, staff, and associated businesses. Every year it include top speakers from New Zealand and overseas, alongside the extremely popular Gala Dinner and annual industr54y prize-giving.
Our SHED meetings bring members together from across a region. They experience a site visit, business information, and an update on NZ Plant Producers activities. SHED stands for See, Hear, Engage, Debate.
Outlook meetings are sector-focused, bringing nurseries and growers together from around New Zealand to discuss common issues. We also run occasional workshops and seminars on specialist topics like science & innovation, and native plant production.
Our popular Science Summit is an opportunity to get the latest research relevant to our industry and is an opportunity to help shape NZPPI's science programmes.
