Tech Week 2022 - Connect for a better tomorrow

Techweek is a nationwide series of events, showcasing and celebrating New Zealand technology and innovation.  It provides a platform for everyone to meet, share ideas and create connections to enhance our future world.

The intention behind Techweek is simple. New Zealand’s technology sector is growing rapidly and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the nation with a week-long opportunity for connection and collaboration. Techweek is an independent platform where individuals, organizations and regions can showcase their unique and inspiring tech and innovation stories.

 We have a great line-up of events this year to nurture the interest in technology and inspire individuals to be the innovators of tomorrow. Please register your interest in the events you would like to attend. Numbers are limited for the in-person events so please register as soon as you are able.
