Techweek’18 is coming to Taranaki for the FIRST TIME EVER… are you ready?


What is Techweek?

Techweek is a week-long festival with the purpose of inspiring the next generation by showing that everyone can be part of the solution through innovation and technology. Techweek started in 2012 as an Auckland-wide festival with 55 events across 10 days attended by 10,000 people. It was such a success, and so in 2017, TechweekAKL became TechweekNZ: a nationwide initiative with a curated programme focused on ‘finding local answers to global questions’ and hosted in 24 locations with 287 events. Techweek continues to grow, and this year will be even bigger and better, and we are proud to be able to bring it to Taranaki.

Events during Techweek can vary from major conferences to small meetups on niche topics, hackathons, workshops, networking events, breakfast presentations, hands on displays and tours. The aim is for events during Techweek to foster growth across industries and sectors, and to build New Zealand’s reputation as a global innovation hub.

The nationwide programme for Techweek'18 is focused on the theme of ‘Innovation that’s good for the world’. To find out more, visit
