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 cross-pollination, and an independent platform through which to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.
The most unique thing about Techweek, New Zealand’s annual festival of innovation, is that no other festival in the world unites an entire nation on the topic of innovation for a week. That’s a very powerful thing, and it speaks to the specialness of this country and the people in it that we are able to pull off a collaborative feat of this size.
The theme for Techweek2020 is – Connecting our future.
TW20 is a nationwide series of events, showcasing and celebrating New Zealand tech innovation – it provides a platform for everyone to meet, share ideas and create connections to enhance our future world.
