First of all, I'd like to welcome aboard Go Wireless NZ as our naming and
Platinum sponsor for NZNOG 2017. NZNOG conferences just wouldn't be
possible without sponsors like Go Wireless NZ so I'd strongly encourage you
all to support them.
Check out their website - https://www.gowifi.co.nz/
At the moment we haven't had as many sponsors come on-board as we would
have hoped for. If you have been considering sponsoring NZNOG but haven't
made contact yet please do so. If you know any companies that might
consider sponsoring NZNOG please encourage them also. sponsorship(a)nznog.org
is the email address for any sponsorship inquiries.
If we don't get more sponsors on-board we may have to consider raising
conference fees slightly. We'd really hope to not do this and to keep NZNOG
at its standard low cost. We have a $1000 community sponsor level available
so even having a few more companies/organisations coming on-board at that
level would help a lot.
We have a call for papers for the conference out. Richard Nelson posted
this on Oct 13 to the list - its also available at
We have just locked in our first workshop (23 - 25 Jan) and tutorial (25
Jan) and hope to have more options soon. We'll aim to release some more
details on these soon.
Finally, we've had a few people book in accommodation at our venue nice and
early which is great to see. A reminder, this conference is in Tauranga in
the height of summer and accommodation will be at a premium. Some
accommodation options are available here -
Look forward to seeing you next year.
(on behalf of the NZNOG trust)
