A Showcase of the Best in Business Mobility

Modern business means mobile business - but how do you take advantage of the latest technology to let the rubber hit the road?

New Zealand business leaders wanting to experience the best in business mobility can put their hands on the latest solutions at the Vodafone Mobility Roadshow next month.

More than 20 leading independent mobile solution providers will be on hand to show businesses of all sizes how they can use new technologies to improve productivity and turn down time into up time.

Business leaders will also experience the latest in Vodafone's wireless office technology, Vodafone Mobile Connect (VMC), mobile email, video calling and the future of 3G, all within a business context.

"This is a unique opportunity for business leaders to learn how available technology can help them work smarter and faster. This showcase is not about showing off new technology but rather demonstrating how you can use the technology to improve your business," says Phil Patel, Vodafone Director of Business Markets.

"The businesses taking part are innovators in their own right. They've taken the latest technology and made it work for them in a way that gives them a significant competitive advantage."

The Vodafone Mobility Roadshow is modelled on an 'expedition' theme, taking businesses on a journey to the centre of the mobile world - with the promise of plenty of discoveries along the way!

The roadshow will be held in Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton and Auckland [see attached table for locations, dates and times] and is expected to attract small to medium business leaders, CIOs, CEOs, CFOs, IT managers/administrators, as well as procurement, finance and Telco managers.

Business people interested in attending should visit to register.
