NZDIA utilises new events platform to deliver International Conferencing Solution for post-Covid new normal

On Friday the 12th of June, NZDIA hosted a demonstration online conference event via the brand new Hopin platform hosted by Event Mergers Limited (EML) through their sister company PAXABLE. The event was a fantastic success with a range of key speakers broadcasting from across New Zealand and Australia, a digital floor show and one-on-one networking for attendees who were able to access the event via their computers, smartphones or tablets from around the world.

We feel that this emerging technology will be vitally important for businesses of all sizes in the post-COVID environment and into and increasing technologically motivated future.

You can  read all about the details of the event in this wonderful write-up on the Defsec Website   and find out more via this Linkedin post by DefSec

Supporting the valuable contributions of industry from NZ and across the world

In the 2019 Defence Capability Plan (DCP), the NZDIA is described as
‘… the preeminent body representing the commercial interests of Defence industry and its individual members. It is industry’s main conduit into Defence and vice versa.’


At the NZDIA Forum on 1 November 2018 Ron Mark, Minister for Defence said:
“Indeed, to deliver value to the Community, Nation and the World into the future, the importance of fostering strong and enduring relationships with Defence industry suppliers cannot be overstated. However, it would be a mistake to define defence industry too narrowly. The value it provides to the Defence Force, and to New Zealand communities, is greater than the delivery of platforms and equipment alone.
Trends such as climate change, transnational crime, irregular migration and terrorism will see the diversity and frequency of events we need to respond to grow. We will require strong strategic partnerships for in-service support to enable our capabilities to maintain high availability and be ready to respond to these changes.”
