[16 June/Stuff NZ]

A big success of Fieldays 2019 has been the number of visitors using public transport, which reduced carbon emissions by 20 tonnes in 2019. Another major focus this year was to recycle 50 per cent of waste produced on site. Fieldays chief executive Peter Nation expects the event to come close to meeting the target. Gate numbers at the end of Fieldays this year were 128,747 for the entire event, with 31,410 attending on the final day. Eleven countries were represented at Fieldays, with more than 300 international delegates in attendance.
