Whiria ngā aho o Tāmaki | Weave together the strands of Tāmaki 

The world is a different place than it was a few years back. With the ever-growing challenges of climate change evidenced by the recent flooding, cyclones and the rise of technology related platforms like AI and Chat GPT, how does our sector keep up to date and thrive?

InterAktive LIVE, delivered by Aktive with support from Sport NZ and Auckland Council, provides an opportunity to leverage extensive networks, knowledge and expertise, so the play, active recreation, and sport sector can work together to prepare for the future.

At InterAktive LIVE 2023, we'll be focusing on:

  • Enhancing collaboration
  • Provoking different thinking 
  • Sharing new ideas
  • Creating connections.

This year’s event will build on the success of the 2022 event where we’ll bring the sector together to have a day of kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face) discussions and hear insights from leaders in their respective fields. We’ll be looking to lift the lid on topics that are going to have a great effect on us as a sector more and more into the future.

  • 8.30am - Doors open
  • 9.00am - Welcome
