Digital Nationz Is Back!


Digital Nationz returns for a second year, with a new format adding Gizmos, Gadgets and Technology to the line up.


Digital Nationz is not only returning for another year but becoming an even bigger digital lifestyle expo. The 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.
