Why get your brand involved with the Smart Christchurch Innovation Expo 2019?
Take a leadership role in New Zealand’s innovation story

share

The Expo environment is a dynamic and flexible setting with interactive exhibits that are an antidote to presentation‑based sales pitches.Forward thinking organisations are incorporating innovative techniques and approaches into their business models. However, government procurement and contract practices remain based on 20th century delivery models that do not take advantage of these industry developments. The Smart Christchurch Innovation Expo is a platform for innovators to reach local and national decision makers and to educate others.

connect

With leaders from central and local government, elected members, public and private sector, education, and industry leaders attending, it is an opportunity to position your organisation as an authoritative, credible, and trusted solutions partner. Leverage the Smart Christchurch Innovation Expo to make connections, explore new partnership opportunities, and generate new leads.

innovate

Christchurch is positioning itself as New Zealand’s innovation hub and is building its reputation as an exemplar city for innovation ‑ replicable across New Zealand and around the world. The expo is an opportunity for your organisation to ‘show and tell’ and promote your innovative solutions and services to industry colleagues, regulators and the public.
