New Zealand’s favourite Internet gathering, NetHui, is winding its way down South on its Roadtrip this year, reaching Greymouth on October 11. NetHui brings people together to discuss the future of the Internet and the challenges and opportunities the internet brings to us all.

DWC’s Research and Innovation Manager, Helen Wilson, has been chairing the regional steering committee for NetHui Greymouth over the last few months of planning. She is looking forward to the NetHui Roadtrip in 2018. "This is a great opportunity for people from all over the region to come together and discuss how the internet shapes our lives and what it means for our region in the future.”

Many West Coast businesses, community groups and individuals have already been involved in setting the agenda for the day, which will include sessions on the internet of things, rural connectivity, beyond bricks and mortar, website DIY, the impact of technology on education in an isolated region, boosting our region using social media, computer security, blockchain and building resilience through technology.

“Emerging Internet-based technology trends pose some exciting opportunities for us and we’re looking forward to talking through all the possibilities and challenges at NetHui,” says Mequa Hourston, spokesperson for NetHui Greymouth.
