ITx Rutherford is coming to town in October. If you can't make it to the full conference, come along to the gala dinner!

Brendhan Lovegrove hosts the ITx Rutherford 2019 Gala Dinner, an action-packed evening full of surprises and celebrating innovation, technology and education.

ITx dinners are legendary. Live entertainment, awesome dinner, open bar, after-party... and a bunch of tech folks who love to party.

The dinner will be awesome - from one of New Zealand's top entertainers, live entertainment from one of New Zealand's top tribute bands, delicious feast, open bar and after-party until late! Really late.

Culinary feast

Dinner will be a family style culinary feast, with a feast of platters delivered to, and shared with, your table. The meal has been designed to cater for everyone while making even the most picky foodies happy.

Wash the meal down with matching wines, beer or non-alcoholic drinks - included in your ticket.

MC: Brendhan Lovegrove

Brendhan Lovegrove

The dinner will be hosted by Brendhan Lovegrove, one of New Zealand's top live comedians.

Brendhan was host of TVNZ's Pulp Comedy alongside various 7 Days appearances. He's also won the coveted NZ Comedy Guild's Best Male Comedian award an unprecedented 9 times (along with a Billy T James Award and a host of other awards). He's the real deal.

Paul Madsen's Superstar Band


Following the dinner, Paul Madsen's Superstar Band will be rocking the house until late.

Paul Madsen (of Stars in Their Eyes fame) heads up some of NZ's best tribute show performances and this will be an incredible night.

The band has been entertaining audiences around New Zealand for the past 15 years, from opening of Super rugby games to TV appearances like TVNZ's Stars In Your Eyes, Corporate, Clubs and Theatre. The Superstar Show is ten different shows in one. Number one hits from The Eagles, Beatles, Abba, Queen, Bee Gees, Ed Sheeren and heaps of contemporary music - Nothing but the hard hitting hits from these legendary bands.

Theme: Mad Scientist

In honour of Ernest Rutherford, the theme for the dinner will be Mad Scientists. Get in the spirit and dress up, or not. Either way, it'll be a truly awesome night.

ITx After-party

Dinner tickets include a "Tastes of Nelson" feast including drinks. And we know that tech folks are often late-night folks; if that's you, and as has become legendary in ITx conferences, we've organised an after-party to run until the wee small hours.
