IoT Waikato Meetup
This event is not run by an association in the Tech Alliance, but may be of interest to some members.
This is an opportunity to get together to share and find out what is happening in this space around the Waikato, NZ, and globally, including opportunities and challenges.
The April event is part of the global celebration of World IoT Day – April 9.
IoT Waikato is hosted by Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand(SCCANZ) in partnership with Wintec and our collaborators NZ IoT Alliance and TechWomen NZ.
Each event also includes an opportunity for 2 min elevator pitches from the audience if you have something to share around how you can help someone or if you need help with an IoT related initiative.
