Established in 2014, ITx is New Zealand's conference of IT
Established in 2014, ITx is three conferences in one; combining the successful IITP and CITRENZ national conferences with the re-launch of the Computer Science Association's conference; establishing the broadest and largest non-vendor general IT conference in New Zealand.
ITx focuses on innovation, technology and education and brings IT professionals, decision-makers, leaders and academics together under one roof. This is a conference like no other: where industry, academia and government come together to network, learn and engage.
ITx will run every second year in either Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch.
The Institute of IT Professionals NZ (IITP) is the professional body of the IT sector and is the largest IT representative body in New Zealand. IITP has run conferences for almost 50 years, although there was a large hiatus prior to the 2010 50th Anniversary Conference. IITP2013 was held in Tauranga and attracted hundreds of IT professionals and thought leaders.
Computer and Information Technology Research and Education New Zealand (CITRENZ) is the representative body for the IT departments of New Zealand's Institute of Technology / Polytechnic sector. CITRENZ has been running successful annual conferences for 27 years.
Computer Science Association of New Zealand (CSANZ) is the forum for the University Computer Science community. CSANZ has been active for many years and 2014 will see the return of the popular CSANZ conference as part of ITx.

ITx 2014 also sees the unveiling of the new Excellence in IT Awards, a sector-wide awards programme focusing on recognising those individuals and teams that have truly excelled in our sector. The Excellence in IT Awards will sit alongside other awards programmes in the sector but fill a much-needed gap in recognising individual excellence across software and IT.
The Excellence Awards categories will be announced shortly and the awards are a collaboration of half a dozen IT industry representative bodies - a truly sector-wide celebration.
The inaugural Excellence in IT Awards will take place as part of ITx, on the night of Friday 10th October 2014.
