Rabobank Sponsorships 
 

National sponsorships

Rabobank is committed to supporting a range of New Zealand organisations – all of whom are focused on developing and enriching New Zealand agribusiness. In keeping with this commitment the bank undertakes a range of sponsorships aligned to industry and key commodity groups. In most cases these sponsorships allow us to demonstrate our "expert knowledge" and provide the opportunity for one of our expert speakers to share knowledge at both a local and global level.
