About Techweek


Our Story

Techweek is a nationwide series of events, showcasing and celebrating New Zealand innovation.  We provide 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 and innovation sectors are growing rapidly and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the national ecosystem with a week-long opportunity for connection and collaboration. Techweek is an independent platform where individuals and organisations can showcase their unique and inspiring innovation stories.

Techweek2021 will be a mix of live, virtual and hybrid events so there’s something to suit everyone. Physical events will be carried out right across the country, while virtual events can be attended and enjoyed from anywhere in the world!
