Key Information

27-29 August 2023, Trinity Wharf Tauranga
Conference theme: Just in case?

The NZ Cold Storage Association invites industry peers and suppliers to attend New Zealand’s premier event for the cold storage and supporting logistics industries. The 90th NZCSA Annual Conference is being held in Tauranga from 27-29 August 2023 at Trinity Wharf Hotel.

This year’s conference theme is “Just in Case!”, which highlights the importance of being prepared, adaptable, and resilient in our ever-changing world.

We understand the risks and challenges associated with maintaining the integrity of temperature-sensitive products and the impact of any disruption can be far-reaching.  The world around us is continually evolving at an unprecedented pace. Climate change, emerging diseases, technological advancements, and shifting consumer demands create a complex landscape that demands constant vigilance and proactive measures. 

The theme “Just in Case” serves as a reminder that we must stay ahead of the curve, anticipate challenges, and develop innovative solutions to address the ever-changing needs of our industry. 

During the conference, we will explore a wide range of topics under the “Just in Case” theme. We will delve into strategies for risk assessment and mitigation, examine the latest advancements in cold storage technologies, discuss regulatory compliance, and share best practices for supply chain optimisation.

The conference provides a platform for knowledge exchange, networking, and collaboration. It is an opportunity for us to come together as a community, share our successes and challenges, and collectively chart a course towards a more secure and resilient future.

A huge shoutout to our amazing sponsors who make all of this possible – thank you.

We look forward to catching up with you in Tauranga this August.
