General
Is the event free?

Is there a physical event component?

No, this is purely a virtual event, which arose from the COVID-19 lockdown that New Zealand experienced.

What is the target market of the event?

This was our first digital event and the focus was a lot broader than future events. Essentially anyone who participates in the IT industry is welcome to attend, this is mainly focused on channel partners although an end-user element will be present.

When did the event start?

The founder of the event Sean Mitchell dreamt up the idea of the event at the end of April 2020 with the website going live on 30th April.

How the site works
Do any companies get preferential treatment?

We randomise the order of the exhibitors, people and categories so that the big and the small in each get an equal amount of time at the top of the web pages. Every company is treated equally.

Why don't you add a search function?

We worry that if we add a search function, then visitors won't ferret around through lots of exhibition stands and people. We hope that by not providing a search it gives everyone a good chance of getting discovered by visitors.

Becoming an exhibitor
How can I become a speaker or get a live session organised?

For those that have an exhibition stand, you can list any upcoming events, live sessions, webinars or similar on it. In addition, these will show on the homepage and under the sessions tab.

Think of our sessions tab as a noticeboard of industry events that are coming up.

How do I claim an exhibition stand?

You simply fill in the form, found here.

We then aim to set up your exhibition stand over the next 2 working hours.

Once your exhibition stand is set up you will be emailed more information about content that can be uploaded to your exhibition stand.

What are the benefits to exhibition stand holders?

Like most conferences and expo's, there are numerous benefits from being an exhibition stand-holder. We detail these on the exhibitor registration page found here.

I am not based in NZ, can I claim an exhibition stand?

Yes, if you actively work in the New Zealand IT industry.

Do exhibitors receive leads from the event?

Yes, every person that enters the event registers their email address. Then when they interact with your exhibition stand or content that will be recorded as a lead.

We intend to distribute leads to exhibitors on Sunday, May 24th. These will be an email address and any other information we have about them.

We purposefully made entry to the event as easy as possible, by just collecting an email address.

There are no guarantees about these leads. They may include competitors, suppliers, fake leads although we hope you will receive lots of quality gold.

Can I have multiple exhibition stands?

In most instances, the answer is no.

We do have exceptions and that is when a distributor is representing a brand in New Zealand. For example, an exhibition stand might have both the distributor and vendor brand on it. This exhibition stand could include either a distributor contact a vendor contact or both.

A person can't appear on multiple stands. As this would create duplicates in our people section.

For this specific instance, you would apply through the exhibition stand claim form multiple times here.

Running your exhibition stand
Can I upload my own content to the exhibition stand?

Yes, the person that set up your exhibition stand has access to a self-service portal, which enables them to upload content really easily.

What types of content can be uploaded to our exhibition stand?

You can add images (like logos & photos), documents (like brochures, whitepapers and other pdfs), links and videos to your stand. This is done through your self-service portal.

Can I add multiple people to my exhibition stand?

There is no limit on the number of people who are uploaded to your exhibition stand. These people then show on the homepage and under the people tab. The uploading process is really simple and done through our self-service portal. The login details have been provided to the person who set up your stand.
