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

Techweek22 will be a mix of live, virtual, hybrid events and Techweek TV, so there’s something to suit everyone. We will explore six themes that showcase how technology can help keep people connected, the economy active, and how New Zealand can become a tech hub for thought leadership in what is a new dawn for all of us.

Event submissions are open for Techweek22.

This year’s festival has six core themes:

Skills & knowledge

The future we live and work in will be technologically advanced. New Zealand is focused on growing its tech and digital skills and talent pool to match the growing demand for jobs and careers in tech.

Digital transformation

We are on a path to digital transformation with technology helping to keep people connected and the economy active, but to attain our share of the exponential growth potential in the digital sector and the economy, we must act now.

Climate & sustainability
New Zealand is defined by its natural environment, and its progressive and entrepreneurial spirit – qualities that can put us at the forefront of climate and sustainable tech solutions.

Global impact
New Zealand has never been as attractive for global investors, tech talent and tech buyers. Now it’s time to tell that story and position New Zealand as an exciting tech industry to engage with. Key to success will be a compelling and consistent international message that encourages a common purpose.

Leaders & innovation
New Zealand is home to some of the most innovative people and businesses in the world. Now is the time to share inspiring stories of local tech innovation and leadership.

Māori tech participation 
Inclusivity is the bedrock of innovation. Techweek22 will elevate and showcase Māori excellence in digital and tech business and encourage our tangata whenua to explore digital careers pathways.
