The intention behind Techweek is simple. New Zealand’s technology and innovation sectors are growing rapidly, and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the national ecosystem with a week-long opportunity for connection and cross-pollination, using an independent platform to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Techweek2020 was postponed from May to 27 July to 2 August, and will be digitally led. This means that while Techweek2020 events may include a physical component, all events must include a way for people to attend virtually.
Was created by NZTech and the Hi-Tech Trust to coincide with the Hi-Tech Awards, to build enthusiasm around new technologies being developed in New Zealand.
NZTech and ATEED join forces to produce TechweekAKL - a festival of innovation ecosystem.
Expanding to become a Nationwide initiative with a curated programme focused on ‘finding local answers to global questions’.
Building momentum and focusing on ‘innovation that is good for the world’ and launching TechweekTV.
Sticking with the theme of ‘good for the world’. TW19 saw the growth of TechweekTV to daily live webcasts and the creation of the Techweek Schools Series.
Looking ahead to focus on ‘connecting our future’ by being recognised as the platform for everyone to meet, share ideas and create connections to enhance our future world.
