Convergence Oceania 2006 and Connectivity 06

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 27-Oct-2006 11:41

I will be in Auckland on the 7 November, attending the Convergence Oceania 2006, an event organised by the New Zealand Wireless and Broadband Forum.

My plan is to fly in and out the same day. Unfortunately I will be arriving about 9:30am in Auckland, so I am going to miss the keynote speaker, Hon David Cunliffe, Minister for Communications and Information Technology, and the session with Andrew Seybold.

I am just looking at the stands layout, and noticed that both Telecom New Zealand and Vodafone New Zealand are not listed. Does it mean they won't be there at all?

Also since the organisation has changed from "New Zealand Wireless Forum" to "New Zealand Wireless and Broadband Forum" I am intrigued for the lack of presence of our local ISPs. The main appearance is from technology providers and service integrators.

Where are the broadband (wired and wireless) providers?

If you are planning to attend the Convergence Oceania 2006 event in Auckland, please ping me, and let's have a chat.

I also just received an e-mail invitation to the Connectivity 06, happening 21 - 22 November 2006 in the Christchurch Convention Centre.

This is its third year and the organisation claims it is one of New Zealand’s top trade shows for electronics and software companies. The schedule of events includes trade exhibits from 50 companies from thoughout Australasia, product demonstrations, industry cocktail function, keynote speaker presentations, and lots of networking opportunities.

Registration for business visitors to the trade show are now being taken through the event’s website at www.esconnectivity.org.nz.

It's a shame I won't be there - great opportunity but my monthly travel budget is not that large, and I have already commited with the tickets to the Auckland show. And I going to miss meeting Chiefie, one of the Geekzone moderators once again.
