InternetNZ’s 2017 NetHui is on Thursday 9th to Friday 10th November at Auckland’s Aotea Centre, returning to a 2-day national event format.
It will be preceded by the 2017 Internet Research Forum on Wednesday 8th November, also in the Aotea Centre.
What is the InternetNZ NetHui?
The NetHui brings everybody and anybody that wants to talk about the Internet together. It’s a collaborative, participative event made for the community, by the community.
What is the theme? What topics will be covered?
NetHui is about Internet related issues that actually matter to you and your community. So the programme is set by all of us. Tell InternetNZ what theme, keynote speakers and discussion topics you want by filling out their short form by Monday 6 March.
Who is it for?
NetHui is for everybody with an interest in the Internet and that wants to talk – and learn from each other- about the Internet. NetHui is open and diverse, and provides a safe space for everybody – regardless of age, occupation, gender, ethnicity, or background – to come together and talk with a respectful, open attitude.
And if past NetHuis are a guide, the registration fee will be very, very affordable!
Is it worth my time?
The 20/20 Trust has been a proud supporter of NetHui since the first event in 2011, and is one of five strategic partners of Internet NZ. We find NetHui very worthwhile and wouldn’t miss it.
Part participants are also very positive: the 2016 feedback survey showed 88.7% of respondents being either extremely or moderately satisfied, 74% being either extremely likely or very likely to recommend NetHui to a friend and 80% feeling that NetHui was excellently organised. The feedback for 2015 NetHui was similar (75%, 73%, 75%).
Block out Thursday 9th to Friday 10th November in your calendar.
Help set the agenda: tell InternetNZ any theme, keynote speakers and discussion topics you want by filling out the short NetHui 2017 Community Consultation form (by Monday 6 March).
