Two-day Summit to discuss New Zealand’s digital future
Over 500 government, business and community leaders are meeting in Auckland on 28 and 29 November to participate in a nation-wide hui on New Zealand’s digital future.
“The Digital Future Summit 2.0 is a key opportunity for all those with an interest in New Zealand’s digital future to listen and share their thoughts on the current state of our digital world and the direction for New Zealand’s digital future,” said Janet Mazenier, Programme Manager for the government’s digital strategy.
For the first time New Zealanders throughout the country can participate in some way in an event of this magnitude, no matter where they are in New Zealand.
“There is no better testament to how fast technology has developed and why this event is so important than the technologies we are using to ensure that New Zealanders through-out the country can participate,” said Janet Mazenier.
New Zealanders can get involved in the Summit by:
