World Avocado Congress New Zealand 2023

New Zealand is proud to host the 10th World Avocado Congress in Auckland, New Zealand in April 2023. The World Avocado Congress provides the opportunity to showcase New Zealand avocados on a world stage and also the ability to access innovation, global knowledge and science to support the growth of the sector.

Taking place from 2-5 April 2023 at the Aotea Centre, Auckland, New Zealand, the World Avocado Congress will include a three day academic programme with international keynote speakers. Regional field days will take place both prior to and following the event. The congress will cover topics including sustainability, production and productivity, breeding and genomics, pest and disease management, extension, agritech, post-harvest supply chain, nutrition in human health and international reports. 

The New Zealand avocado community will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to access global avocado experts and apply this knowledge to New Zealand’s unique avocado growing conditions and challenges. In turn, global avocado customers and retailers will learn about the leadership of our systems, our growing practice and our sustainability.

The World Avocado Congress is anticipated to attract more than a 1000 people from over 50 countries, including international growers, researchers, marketers, retailers, tech innovators and investors.
