18 Oct 2013

An ambitious Auckland waterfront tourism attraction is making waves, signing the first of many sponsors.

With plans being drawn and funding applications being pursued, Mark Barlow’s vision of a Silicon Valley style 'New Zealand Computer Museum' is edging closer to reality.

The New Zealand Computer Museum is proud to announce that Tomizone has become its first corporate sponsor for Wi-Fi and associated services.

“We believe this is an exciting project that will be a major attraction for both locals and visitors," says Steve Simms, CEO, Tomizone.

"We look forward to helping them make this project a reality."

Echoing Simms' comments, Mark Barlow, spokesman for the New Zealand Computer Museum says: “It’s great that Tomizone has embraced our vision and come on board.

"We have a number of other discussions underway and will be announcing further sponsorships shortly."

Founded in 2006, Tomizone is the largest Wi-Fi enabler in Australasia.
