NZ's Internet event NetHui is hitting the road

Want to be part of conversations that help to shape New Zealand's Internet and the ways it can change our lives for the better? InternetNZ has announced dates and locations for this year's NetHui, the hugely successful Internet event that is now in its sixth year.

This year NetHui will break from tradition and hold three one-day events in local communities. The events will be held in Nelson on 13 October, South Auckland on 15 October, and Rotorua on 17 October.

NetHui is a community-based event about the Internet and the people that use it. NetHui is run by the community, for the community, and prioritises participation and interaction from attendees.

InternetNZ's Chief Executive, Jordan Carter, says that it's important that NetHui involves all of the Internet community, including those that live outside of the major centres.

"We want to broaden NetHui's horizons and connect with more people who use the Internet across New Zealand. This is why we're taking NetHui on the road this year."

NetHui is a community event, and ticket prices are set low so that NetHui remains open and accessible to all those who wish to attend.

These events are for anyone that uses the Internet and anyone who is interested in improving the Internet. Attendees are diverse, and could come from a range of sectors including business owners, education providers, regional start-ups and people from the general public who are interested in tech and the way the Internet is changing New Zealander's lives.
