Innovation Expo 2022

Due to the country moving to the red setting on the COVID-19 Protection Framework, we're postponing the Smart Christchurch Innovation Expo.

Unfortunately it is not feasible to hold the expo under the Red setting on the COVID-19 Protection Framework.

We had some great exhibitors lined up to take part in the expo, and we will be working with them to ensure that they still have the opportunity to showcase their new technologies and innovations to the public and to each other.

We will be in touch again once we have confirmed our next steps.

Share

Experience over 100+ innovative solutions from emerging start-ups, social enterprises, academic institutions (including student projects), and industry disruptors. The Expo environment is a dynamic, flexible setting with interactive exhibits, which provide a different approach to presentation-based sales pitches.

Hear from over 50+ technology vendors, product developers, and thought leaders’ experiences and expertise on topics including future transport, cyber security, future of place, the Internet of Things and more at the Innovation Summit.

Connect

A chance to explore new connections, partnerships and collaborations, the Expo brings together 10,000 attendees from central and local government, education, public and private sectors.

Collaboration is at the heart of innovation, and the Expo provides an opportunity to connect with like-minded people, decision-makers, and the public.

Innovate

The Innovation Expo is a platform to share projects, showcase technology, and exchange ideas, which aim to inspire the collective genius around us to bring new innovation to life.

The Innovation Expo is hosted by Smart Christchurch, a Christchurch City Council programme which promotes Christchurch as an innovation hub, using leading-edge technology to connect communities and information.
