The Expo environment is a dynamic, flexible setting with interactive exhibits, which provide a different approach to presentation-based sales pitches.

Hear from over 50+ technology vendors, product developers, and thought leaders’ experiences and expertise on topics including future transport, cyber security, future of place, the Internet of Things and more at the Innovation Summit.


A chance to explore new connections, partnerships and collaborations, the Expo brings together 10,000 attendees from central and local government, education, public and private sectors.

Collaboration is at the heart of innovation, and the Expo provides an opportunity to connect with like-minded people, decision-makers, and the public.


The Innovation Expo is a platform to share projects, showcase technology, and exchange ideas, which aim to inspire the collective genius around us to bring new innovation to life.


The Innovation Expo is hosted by Smart Christchurch, a Christchurch City Council programme which promotes Christchurch as an innovation hub, using leading-edge technology to connect communities and information.
