SIDE 2017

Lincoln University, Canterbury


All delegates, speakers and sponsors can register online now. If you are unable to register online, please email the SIDE Secretariat at side@lincoln.ac.nz.

Numbers attending SIDE are restricted to the venue capacity. Early booking is recommended. Priority will be given to farmer registrations received before the earlybird closing date of Monday 12 June 2017. This may mean that commercial organisations are limited to just one or two registrations if maximum numbers are reached by the earlybird closing date.

The views presented at SIDE are the opinions of the individual speakers and are not necessarily shared by the SIDE organising committee or supporting organisations. Given the general nature of some of the views and information presented at SIDE, and the fact that every participant’s individual circumstances are different, SIDE participants should not act solely on the basis of the material presented at the event, but should obtain specific advice according to their own circumstances.


SIDE 2017 is being held at Lincoln University, corner of Springs Road and Ellesmere Junction Road, Lincoln, Christchurch.


Workshops include 20-minute presentations followed by 25-minute open discussions where participants have the opportunity to question the presenters.

Numbers are restricted for some workshops and spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Each workshop will be repeated.

Please select your workshops when you register online. If a workshop venue becomes full, you will need to select another workshop. You can then print the workshops you have selected. We will also have a printed copy of your selections available at registration.
