We will be stationed on stand 1012 in the Innovation Quarter and will be showing off the new 2018 Ubco 2×2 road-legal electric utility bike and the Inverse Hair Conditioning System. We’re sharing the stand with our friends at Caliber, who are featuring a Stabicraft Fisher 1600 boat and Shotover camera mount.
You’ll also find us off the stand in the seminar rooms. Together, Daniel Faris from Locus and Jonathan Prince from Caliber Design will present two talks:
DAY 1 — Tuesday 1 May at 11:45 AM
Alone we are smart; together we are brilliant.
How to collaborate successfully: Stabicraft 1600 Fisher Case Study
We are a small country but we punch above our weight on the global stage. To compete, New Zealand businesses need to innovate and collaborate; using our collective skill sets to make collective gains. Sounds great in theory … but how do you make it work in practice?
Between them, Caliber Design and Locus Research have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience working on successful collaborations on products as diverse as a hair conditioning system and conveyor belts; electric bikes and spinal traction beds; a weatherboard system and food handling equipment.
Using the Stabicraft 1600 Fisher trailer boat as a case study, we’ll share the good, the bad, and the ugly about companies working together and making great products in New Zealand.
DAY 2 — Thursday 3 May at 12:30 PM
Design and Manufacturing: The Collaborative Approach
Making Collaboration Work. Stories of kiwi success – Ubco 2×2 electric bike case study
The Ubco 2×2 electric bike is a perfect example of two New Zealand companies coming together to deliver a game changer to the world market. Collaboration can lead to success, but it doesn’t always go the way you imagine.
Between them, Locus Research and Caliber Design have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience working on successful collaborations on products as diverse as a hair conditioning system and conveyor belts; electric bikes and spinal traction beds; a weatherboard system and food handling equipment.
