Boost to innovation

Written by 

National Fieldays has launched ‘Fieldays Innovation Accelerator’ with its new sponsor Callaghan Innovation, aiming to “accelerate the rise of Kiwi inventions to the global stage”.

This is intended as a ‘stepping stone’ by which previous years’ exhibitors in the Innovation Centre can continue at Fieldays without the cost of a full exhibition site. 

The ‘accelerator’ is a “logical evolution for Fieldays Innovation as the incubator and catalyst for agritech innovation,” says chief executive Jon Calder. 

“Fieldays must continue to evolve and adapt…. In this way Fieldays is much more than a trade show. Our mission is to advance agriculture [by fostering] technology and innovation.”

Other Fieldays partners and sponsors include Vodafone, SODA Inc, Locus Research, James and Wells and Tru-Test.
