Hawke’s Bay rolls out the green carpet


Hawke’s Bay rolls out the green carpet

Promotes region for the first time as agribusiness destination at Fieldays®

Hawke’s Bay, June 2018 - Hawke’s Bay is rolling out the green carpet for the first time at this year’s New Zealand Agricultural Fieldays as part of a new initiative to raise the profile of the region, and focus on agribusiness attraction/relocation as well as agribusiness investment.

Business Hawke’s Bay Chief Executive Carolyn Neville says that a team fact-finding trip with Hastings and Napier councils to Fieldays 2017 highlighted the opportunity to promote the Hawke’s Bay region as a whole as an agribusiness destination.

Uniting under the ‘Think Hawke’s Bay, Great Things Grow Here’ regional business attraction umbrella are all the councils of Hawke’s Bay, together with Napier Port and Business Hawke’s Bay.

Think Hawke’s Bay will have a stand in the main pavilion (site PB8) and provide lots of information about the region and the opportunities and support available for agribusinesses. Think Hawke’s Bay will also run a ‘Win a weekend in Hawke’s Bay’ competition to raise awareness of the region and encourage Fieldays visitors to check out Hawke’s Bay exhibitors and enter the prize draw.
