The annual Techweek programme is open for event submissions from any interested individual, group or company nationwide.
In Techweek24, the programme will focus on two broad audiences:
General Public | it's time to show New Zealanders the value and potential impact technology on their lives and on Aotearoa's future prosperity.
Tech Ecosystem | Techweek is our annual opportunity to connect across the New Zealand tech sector to grow our capability and celebrate our success.
The Techweek platform harnesses the power of the community to make your event the best it can be, by connecting you with the people you need to make it happen (whether you're after a free venue, cool speakers, or even someone to bring along the coffee).
Leveraging Techweek's brand lends credibility and amplifies your mahi to grow your impact. Running a Techweek event gives you access to a library of assets and tools to market your event more effectively.
Amplification across Techweek's network will build on your own. Tag us #techweek24 #goodfortheworld @techweeknz to extend your reach.
Local Techweek programmes are coordinated by Techweek's Regional Coordinators on the ground throughout the country. This awesome team can help you make local connections and provide hands-on support throughout the event planning and delivery stages.
Techweek event submissions are open to any individual, group or company interested in leveraging the Techweek platform.
Each year, Techweek chooses these pillars to help our nationwide event organiser community to focus the content of their events for maximum impact. The goal is for Techweek to contribute toward the growth of our tech sector, for the benefit of all New Zealanders.
Techweek is all about helping New Zealanders to discover new and emerging technologies, and learn about how it can impact their lives for the better. It's also an opportunity for us to connect, share and up skill across the tech sector.
As such, the Techweek programme includes a diverse range of event types, from conferences, expos and demos, to networking, webinars, workshops and classes. Techweek events can be in person, virtual, or hybrid.
There is no restriction on the type of event that can run within the Techweek programme, the most important thing is understanding who the audience is, and what the objective or desired outcome is for each event.
This helps our nationwide team of coordinators categorise your event correctly so the right audience can find it on the platform.
Techweek is run by NZTech — your unified industry voice driving tech for good. We are a not-for-profit membership funded NGO that connects, promotes and advances tech to create a better tomorrow for all New Zealanders.
As a not-for-profit, we rely on industry support to run Techweek, which is why we request a koha for individuals or organisations who would like to leverage New Zealand's largest and most established tech festival for promotion or sales purposes.

The event submissions portal opens on 26 February 2024.
You will be able to login, submit your events, and contact your regional coordinator for support in bringing your event to life.
Techweek24 event submissions close on 30 April 2024, however we recommend publishing your event before 1 April, to benefit from the halo effect of national marketing & PR activity.
The Techweek event submissions portal is very intuitive. If you come armed with all the elements that make up your event: target audience, objective, event name, description, date, venue, speakers, ticketing information etc. Then you will find the process straightforward.
If you need support finalising those details, that's when your regional coordinator can help.
Once the portal opens, we'll provide a comprehensive guide on how to use it, and the Techweek Team and your regional coordinators will be on hand to support as needed.
