DIGITAL NATIONZ returns for a second year, with a new format as it joins forces with the Gizmos, Gadgets and Technology Show, a new digital lifestyle expo, which was originally due to launch in 2015 and has been modelled on Las Vegas’s Consumer Electronics (CES) show.

DIGITAL NATIONZ (DNZ) was launched in September 2013 as New Zealand’s first digital entertainment expo, influenced by America’s iconic E3 expo. The combined GGTS + DNZ show will be held at Auckland’s Vector Arena on the 27th and 28th of September 2014.

The joint show will bring together the thrilling previews of games, prototypes and an even bigger version of the incredibly popular ‘history of gaming’ museum from last year’s DNZ while adding never-before-seen lifestyle technology, helpful gadgets and creative, fun gizmos which are the cornerstones of the Gizmos, Gadgets and Technology Show.

Just like its international counterparts the show is full of vibrant and interactive elements with everything from fun, innovation-driven workshops through to visionary speakers enlightening and dazzling you with the endless possibilities of tomorrow’s technology.

DNZ was founded in response to there being no major electronic/digital expo in New Zealand. DNZ launched to an outstandingly positive response with close to 7000 attendees playing previews of games, joining the innovative workshops and listening to speaker sessions, over the two days packed with digital fun.

“I couldn’t be happier being able to announce this new joint show format which joins DNZ together with the Gizmos, Gadgets and Technology Show, and to give Kiwis the opportunity to take part in the kind of game and tech show they deserve,” says Peter Hall, founder of DNZ and event manager for the combined GGTS + DNZ show. We always wanted our show to be as much the attendees’ show as it is ours, we’ve listened to the feedback and will deliver more of the stuff you loved while making improvements and changes in areas that need to be even better.

“I don’t think you could ask for a better match of content with this joint announcement. Anyone even remotely interested in technology, gadgets and gizmos will have a blast, and if they are like me and love these kind of things, it’s guaranteed to be the highlight of the year.”

Ross Prevette, managing director of The Event Company Ltd which developed the Gizmos, Gadgets and Technology Show concept, says: “The idea for the Gizmos, Gadgets & Technology Show came from seeing the phenomenal popularity of The Gadget Show Live in the United Kingdom and the array of new products which are launched at the International Consumer Electronics Show in the United States.

The show will run over 2 days, 27-28th of September 2014, with tickets going on sale August 13th 2014.
