After a year of COVID-19-related disruptions, the Ingram Micro Showcase On The Road 2022 is finally going ahead, with registration now open to interested parties.
The roadshow will visit eight towns and villages in Aotearoa from October 18 to November 24, with a packed schedule featuring 50 vendors, educational presentations and concurrent vendor sessions.
“The past two years have highlighted the value of coming together in an industry that is as much about people as it is about technology,” the Ingram Micro event page states.
“As a result, we look forward to welcoming you as we share information on emerging technologies and trends, as well as innovation and, of course, provide you with the opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues across the entire industry.”
Starting October 18 in Auckland, the roadshow will visit Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch, New Plymouth, Palmerston North and Napier.
Ingram Micro says on its site that the aim of the roadshow is to connect key players in the IT ecosystem, providing a critical opportunity to drive business development and network with the people who make New Zealand’s IT industry work.
The offering will aim to provide access to industry partners, as well as a platform to share emerging trends and new ideas in the channel community in Aotearoa and beyond.
