  1. Consider showing off your Tech initiatives - the more the merrier through 
    1. Onsite demos at your  site
    2. Setting up a  display with others at the Park as a part of our Showcase
    3. Setting up a display somewhere else in the region (Matamata, Paeroa, Thames, Raglan etc)
  2. Let us know of any leading edge activities you have going - and whether you have speakers that can tell a good story 
  3. Join us at the Park on 23 January for a bit of a briefing  (10 am)  or drop us a note and we can catch up with you individually - Just message anyone from the list above or email me.

We are pulling together all the pieces and can assist with your planning, promotion and coordination so we hope to hear from you with all your latest innovations
