FMG Stadium, 128 Seddon Road, Frankton, Hamilton

Technology is changing our world and creating new jobs, businesses and whole industries. Increasingly, these technologies are converging and creating new possibilities. New Zealand businesses can thrive by taking advantages of these changes, or they can become obsolete. 

In partnership with Waikato Innovation Park, join Callaghan Innovation’s CEO Vic Crone and technology experts on Friday 29 September in Hamilton to gain insight into the emerging trends you need to know about: 

  • Big data 
  • Virtual and augmented reality 
  • The internet of things 
  • Advanced manufacturing 
  • Advanced materials 
  • Biotechnology. 

We’ll look at how these technology areas are converging; how other businesses are using them to succeed and how yours can get ahead of the curve by incorporating these technologies into your product development. 

You’ll also get to try some tools for thinking about how technologies can create opportunities and solve issues for your business. 

Connections are crucial for innovation success, so you'll have the chance to build some during networking before and after the event. 

We’d also like to hear from you – please email Tane Aikman to let us know what your challenges are and what technology questions you’d like answered.
