NetHui West Coast

NetHui is heading to the West Coast on 11 October! The event will be held in Greymouth at Tai Poutini Polytechnic.

Spokesperson for NetHui Greymouth - Mequa Hourston says Greymouth, and the wider West Coast region, is excited to welcome the NetHui Roadtrip in 2018.

“The West Coast is a unique place, stretching from Karamea in the north to Haast in the south. We’re bounded by the Southern Alps and Tasman Sea – making our home a stunning place to live and visit but also providing some unique challenges to communication and traditional business operations.

“Emerging Internet-based technology trends pose some exciting opportunities for us and we’re looking forward to talking through all the possibilities and challenges at NetHui later this year,” says Mequa Hourston.
