1. Who should attend Southern SaaS?

Southern SaaS is open to all people working in New Zealand SaaS businessess, regardless of their role. We look forward to welcoming SaaS founders and leaders and their team members.

2. What does it cost to attend?

Tickets to Southern SaaS 2023 are $450 excl GST.

Please note that no discounts are available for group bookings.

3. Will there be an online attendance option this year?

For the first time since 2019, we’re meeting exclusively in person at the Aotea Centre in Auckland. We will be running a one-day, in-person only programme this year.

4. How has the programme changed since 2020?

Southern SaaS 2023 will condense the same level of insights, connections, and workshops into a single day programme. Instead of offering workshops and speakers across two days as we’ve done in the past, we’re splitting the day into a morning of thought-provoking speakers and an afternoon of actionable workshops.

5. Can I register to attend if I’m not a kiwiSaaS Central member?

Yes, but we strongly recommend that you join the kiwiSaaS Central online community.

To enhance the networking opportunities and learning that you receive on the day, we recommend that you sign up now to ‘kiwiSaaS Central,’ our online community. It’s free to join and members will have access to exclusive offers and post-event activities and support. To find out more about kiwiSaaS membership, head to our website.

7. How can I become a kiwiSaaS Central member?

Joining the kiwiSaaS community is free to anyone working in New Zealand’s fast-growing SaaS sector. You can head to our website linked here for more information on how to sign up. 

8. How can I tune in or attend from outside of Auckland?

For those unable to attend in-person on the day, we’ll be sharing some key insights and snapshots of the day on the What's On page of our member-only kiwiSaaS Central platform (find out how to join here). We’ll also be sharing high-level findings from the day across our social media platforms and website in the weeks following the event.

However, there will be no livestreamed broadcast of Southern SaaS or remote/online attendance this year.

9. What will I get from attending Southern SaaS?

You’ll hear the latest on opportunities and advice for those working in New Zealand’s growing SaaS sector from industry thought leaders in our morning’s presentation sessions.

Our programme includes 5 hours of opportunities to network and connect with your peers across the SaaS community.

Further, we’re encouraging attendees to show up on the day with a specific challenge or issue in mind that they’d like to tackle in our afternoon workshops. Our goal is to ensure you go home with a solution or actions you can implement in your SaaS work the very next day.

10. What’s the COVID-19 contingency plan?

In the event of COVID-19 restriction levels impacting the event, the organisers reserve the right to reschedule the event or alter the event format to allow the event to proceed safely within guidelines. Should the event be rescheduled, you have the right to use your ticket to attend the rescheduled event. Should the event format be altered, we will be in contact with you with further details regarding the altered event.
