About the Event

New Zealand’s essential AI event Aotearoa AI Summit will bring together AI interested organisations of all sizes and stages to hear from pioneers in the field.

Our impressive speakers and panelists will be sharing the latest developments so we can all learn from those at the forefront of AI. We’re committed to promoting and advancing the Aotearoa AI ecosystem so that we can realize the enormous opportunity AI presents.

This year will have a practical, New Zealand centric focus; looking at the ‘how-to’ of AI – ensuring attendees leave feeling inspired and empowered to do more with AI.

The event also includes the first opportunity for industry to engage and help steer our National AI Strategy.

Attendees will connect and collaborate with the goal of not only developing improved awareness of AI in New Zealand, but also in delving deeper to discuss how AI can support the growth of our economy, tackle environmental and social challenges and what needs to happen to make this a reality.
