A big thank you from us for those who attended the very first techXpo – Auckland 2017!
It is an understatement to say we were overwhelmed by the support received for the first event of this kind in New Zealand, and we sincerely regret the capacity issues we had at the venue on Saturday and Sunday. We apologise unreservedly for underestimating the numbers and turn up ratio; the average amount of time people would spend enjoying the show and the restriction on numbers at the venue – all resulting in long waiting times.
Once people were in it was a huge success with thousands and thousands of people getting hands on with the latest technology and taking home some fantastic prizes and deals.
There were so many great highlights from the show:
- Over 50 lucky prize winners including those who got the opportunity to design and build their dream PC and take it home for half-price
- Over 600 people who got to fly a drone for the very first time
- Thousands of people experienced the latest in VR technology at the 10 separate VR stations
- And countless others got to go hands-on with the latest tech available
There has been a lot of learning and now we have a baseline rather than our imaginations to work from to plan for next time, please be assured with our learnings and the feedback we are seeking we will come back much better next time.
See you in 2018!
