The build up to Windows 10
The TechEd you know and love is returning this year with a new name – Ignite NZ. Tickets are on sale as of yesterday, with just a limited number of earlybird priced tickets available. We’ve been inspiring the insatiable techie for nineteen years, so this year it’s going to be big. Twentieth year BIG.

The conference is from 1 - 4 September. It will begin with Ignite Kick-off at Vector Arena followed by three days of technical sessions at SKYCITY.

Whether you’ve been with us since the conference first sparked in 1996 or it’s going to be your first experience, the core of the conference remains the same: mix and match tracks, jump from session to session, and at the end of the day, kick-back and connect with like-minded peers.

Discounted tickets for individuals and groups are available for a limited time only. The Ignite Kick-off event (including the keynote followed by networking and entertainment) is included in every full conference ticket, but a separate ticket can be purchased to just this event.

Whether you find inspiration through connections or content, the curated experience you can create for yourself at Ignite NZ this year will leave your innovation tanks full and your Twitter feed scroll worthy.

It's always an exciting time; full of energy, new ideas and very clever people.

Looking forward to seeing you there this year.
