at Orakei Bay, Auckland

The RANZ Board would like to thank all of our sponsors, speakers and attendees at this event. Everyone put in a lot of effort to make it work, and it did. Thank you!

Photos will be available soon.

The theme was “AI in Insights: Friend or Foe?”. We’d like to encourage an honest conversation about what's here now, what's coming in our industry, and what it means for us all. What actually is AI? Is it something for us to embrace, to resist or something in-between?

Non arrivals at the event and cancellations after 22 June 2022 will still be charged the full invoice amount, tickets are transferable to other people if you are unable to attend.
