SIDE  25-26 June 2019

Run by farmers for farmers, SIDE lines up industry experts to deliver keynote addresses, networking sessions and practical workshops.

All delegates, speakers and sponsors can register in early April. If you are unable to register online, please email the SIDE Secretariat at 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 at the end of May 2019. 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 2019 is being held at ILT Stadium Southland Invercargill.


We are working on bringing you a selection of inspiring workshops and presenters for 2019.

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