Connectivity key to health and wellbeing at Fieldays Online

If you can do it at Fieldays at Mystery Creek you can do it at Fieldays Online – with the possible exception that you might have to make your own hot bacon roll. The virtual event means you can be immersed in everything you love about the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agricultural event, at the click of your fingertips.

“With connectivity at the centre of the event combined with innovation and adaptability, Fieldays Online is all about bringing Fieldays to anyone, anywhere at any time. The content includes live and on-demand TV, webinars, articles, exclusive deals and much more. This is all delivered in an engaging way and is accessible on any device, so audiences can engage at a time and in a format that suits them,” says Nikki Streater, GM of Satellite, the digital agency building the Fieldays Online platform in partnership with the New Zealand National Fieldays Society.

“Satellite are working with exhibitors to turn their product updates/launches, sales, promotions, news & info, activations and features into a digital site that the visitors can easily access and explore. We’ll also have live stream and on-demand videos, panel discussions and webinars bringing the latest innovation and insight for the sector.”

The Fieldays Health and Wellbeing Hub, a central part of the traditional event, will be an interactive space for visitors to enjoy during Fieldays Online. Kiwi favourites Hyundai, who have been attending Fieldays since 2004, are bringing their ‘Good as Gold’ Fieldays deals as well as a unique health and wellbeing offering to the virtual event.

At Fieldays Online, one of Hyundai’s ambassadors, ‘Dr Tom’ will be hosting a series of ‘talks’ on Fieldays TV, both live and on-demand, sharing with viewers some of his PGG Wrightson ‘Walk the Talk’ Wellness Tour stories from his travels meeting farmers around the countryside. Dr Tom’s intentions with ‘Walk the Talk’ is to hear what farmers have to say, provide some tools to measure, monitor and motivate health and wellbeing, and connect other farmers in the area into this discussion in their community.

Hyundai has worked with ‘Dr Tom’, to provide customers valuable health and wellbeing advice, as well as complimentary access to the KYND app, a mobile phone app that was founded by Dr Tom, which measures mental, physical and social health. It also provides videos from top New Zealand doctors, psychologists, and nutritionists on how to manage mental and physical health.

It doesn’t end there; visitors can give back to the community during Fieldays Online. For years Hyundai gifted a tree to customers who purchased at Fieldays, and this year customers get to choose a charity that Hyundai will make a $50 donation to on their behalf. The New Zealand charities included are the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand, Westpac Rescue, Barnardos, Sustainable Coastlines, St John, Spirit of Adventure Trust, and Women’s Refuge.
