Welcome to the 2021 Tech Users Day held on Tuesday 10th August.
It’s ten years since the last annual event was held which celebrated 25 years for TUANZ with a day which looked forward rather than back. This year we want to do the same by focusing on our vision of New Zealand being in the top 10 digital ready nations by 2030. What will that look like? How do we get there? How do we harness the momentum for digitalisation? What can we all do to achieve the kinds of things we want for New Zealand? And how can we make sure no one is left out or left behind?
The day was opened by the Hon David Clark, the Minister for the Digital Economy and Communications.
In our 35th year of leading positive change we want to help mobilise users across all parts of society and the economy so they are aware of the opportunities as well as what’s next in technology developments.
We have a vision that New Zealand will be in the top 10 digital ready nations by 2030.
Slides, where available, are able to be downloaded as a PDF file where the logo is shown.
