Data Futures regularly engages with New Zealanders to champion data innovation, explore challenges in the data ecosystem, and test new ideas. This includes running workshops, presenting at conferences, and meeting with sector groups like trade bodies.  We want to hear about people's experiences and get feedback on our approach.

If you are involved in an organisation with an interest in data, or organising an event and are looking for speakers, please do get in touch.

Below is a summary of events the Partnership has organised or attended (this excludes meetings that we have with individuals):
