Different 2020 EGVID, but data, insights and learnings will not be lost

Australia: East Gippsland Vegetable Innovation Days to livestream event

The organising committee of the East Gippsland Vegetable Innovation Days, in collaboration with a supportive group of sponsors and industry bodies is busy building a digital engagement plan that will bring people from all over the country into a virtual experience on site, through the creation of videos, webinars and live streaming.

Like many events in these unprecedented disruptive times, EGVID is maximising the opportunity to reach and connect with people and industry online.

EGVID director, Andrew Bulmer, said connecting with the grow site from afar via phones and computers is a new field for everyone, but he looks positively at the upside of being able to reach people who might not have ordinarily travelled to the region.

"Whilst nothing can replace the impact of walking onsite, touching the crops and talking face to face, by hosting a wide range of content online, as well as live streaming when those crops are at their planned peak on the 7th and 8th of May, ironically, we are likely to reach thousands more," Mr Bulmer said.
