Biography

Having finished studying Marketing, Management and Psychology at Otago University in 2009, Josh quickly moved into an entrepreneurial space by starting a Student Tax Return company and 1-Night.co.nz (New Zealand’s premier festival ticketing agency).
He now leads the marketing and sales activities for SmartShow – taking ShowGizmo to the world, on- and off-line including organising Event Camp DownUnder and Event Camp MiddleEast for the past two years.
Josh strongly believes in sustainable practices and prides himself in being green. He is very interested in high tech, innovation, marketing, social media and anything New Zealand.

Josh travels with ShowGizmo to Events to talk on Social Media, Events Marketing as well as Event Technology focussing on Mobile Event Apps, their evolution, how best to deploy them at your events and where they are headed.
