06 Aug 2010

Update: Tickets are now on sale.

CreativeTech is being billed as a new technology forum that will focus on all things Apple.

It aims to offer a mix of presentations, from practical ‘how to’ showcases of the latest Apple, Adobe, FileMaker and Microsoft software, to advanced developing for the iPhone and iPad.

CreativeTech’s biggest Apple fan, Mark Webster, says the event will cover developing, design, music, photography, movie making, education and business administration.

“From mum and dad home users wanting Mac tips, to the musicians and filmmakers of tomorrow, there’s something for everyone, from practical to creative to visionary,” he said.

The event runs on September 10th and September 11th at the Auckland University of Technology Wellesley Street campus.

CreativeTech is sponsored by AUT, Vodafone, Adobe, FileMaker, Pacific Blue, nzherald.co.nz, Idealog, NetGuide (that’s us!), Radio Live and George FM.

Tickets cost $200 for two-day pass or $120 for a one-day pass. You can find out loads more about the event here.
