Can you compete in the international market?

"Can you compete in the international market?" is the theme for this year's Summit.

Prepare to be inspired as our prominent speakers from Google, Z Energy, VoucherMob, Serato, Sidhe, Connect2Field, Commonwealth Bank, Unlimited Realities, Movac, GreenButton and more, share with you their insights, experiences and lessons learned. Separate business and technical breakouts will ensure appeal to managers and developers in the ICT industry.

Networking is, of course, one of the major highlights of this event and organisers have ensured plenty of opportunity for attendees to mingle with others in the technology sector.

For the first time we are partnering with the University Commercialisation Offices of New Zealand (UCONZ) who are hosting the evening networking event and display. The aim of UCONZ and the University-Business Partnerships Initiative is to create stronger university and business partnerships by helping to bring business needs together with university research and identify matches to create value in the New Zealand economy.

The Universities will be showcasing and promoting their research capabilities and latest ICT innovations, and providing a platform for feedback from the business sector.
