No, this is purely a virtual event, which arose from the COVID-19 lockdown that New Zealand experienced.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You simply fill in the form, found here.

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.
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.

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.
