Phoenix Rising is back baby for 2022, and although the Covid storm might have put a damper on their full-scale Summit, they are in the business of going back to the drawing board and whisking something new up. The revised Phoenix Rising will be held on 7th April at Wynyard Pavilion from 6:30pm.

Come for a creative dinner date with Phoenix and LiveNDirect, an evening hosted by Keith Turner (LiveNDirect) who will interview and chat with

  • Caitlin Crisp (New Zealand Fashion Designer)
  • Sam Gribben (CEO of Melodics/former CEO of Serato)
  • NZ entrepreneurs Thomas & Michael (The Dudes Project).
  • Also, expect musical interludes from some special damn fine Aotearoa musicians. With additional speakers to be announced!

With gatherings limited to 100, we will have seated tables of 10, with the idea to match-make our ticket holders to a table of creative peers with similar specialties and interests. Giving the opportunity to network and converse with someone new, in a time when mingling and moving is restricted. 

Phoenix Summit is a creative community-based platform whose purpose is to serve up healthy plates of passion, motivation and inspiration to the multitudes of creative minds in New Zealand. We do this at our in-person events by curating speaker line ups of vibrant, interesting and thought-provoking creative business individuals; whilst ensuring both international and homegrown minds are present. 

Please note: Your ticket includes dinner; a catered menu from Wynyard and a beverage from our hospitality partner Steinlager. 

Free parking for your first hour at Jellicoe Street car park. See more here
