WHY BE PART OF TECHWEEK?
Techweek exists to amplify your innovation stories to the rest of New Zealand and the world. It provides a unique opportunity to connect, to inspire and to build capability in others and yourself.
In 2017, Techweek was proud to host a programme of more than 287 events in 24 locations across the country during the festival. In 2018, we're growing again.
The focus for Techweek'18 is INNOVATION THAT'S GOOD FOR THE WORLD, and within that a celebration of New Zealand's unique, interconnected innovation ecosystem.
For the first time, the Techweek team are co-creating four hero events that tell the story our most exciting companies and the ecosystems that connect them. We're also inviting international visitors to come on down New Zealand during Techweek to explore, discover and play a role.
Despite these new, exciting developments, the core of Techweek's programme is still shaped by awesome event organisers who are plugged into their local innovation ecosystems.
