Techweek Highlight Event

DIGI_X: Digital Decisions

DIGI_X is an exciting conference on the real-world use cases of tech and innovation that help businesses grow at scale, scope and speed.

What's it all about?

The Employers and Manufacturers Association believes that the future of New Zealand business lies in the use of technology and innovation to grow at scale and speed, to redefine business boundaries, to become customer-centric and to find new markets and revenue streams.  This belief is the driving force behind DIGI_X.

DIGI_X is a digital technology showcase but more importantly it is a platform for sharing real world use cases of innovative technologies and participating in the thought-provoking conversations around them. It is targeted at business leaders, senior managers and smaller business owners, to help them lead thought and spark the strategic ideas and initiatives that drive smart workplaces and successful digital enterprises.

The 2019 edition of DIGI_X will feature exciting names and companies, thought leaders, industry experts and trailblazers from across verticals who  will:

1) Qualify the emerging digital technology trends in business for the 2019/20 period - what to expect, which ones are useful, where to focus and also who & what to upskill on

2) Discuss with real New Zealand stories of how businesses of varying sizes and maturities adapt and transform while addressing the constraints in driving transformation.

3) Enact the drivers of transformation across people, technologies and the methodologies that are becoming more relevant

4) Explore how fringe ideas of today will leverage technology and innovation to become mainstream business models of tomorrow
