Watch our event 'The Taranaki Tech Ecosystem: Connecting the Dots'

Taranaki has the potential for a vibrant tech sector, but what do we need to do to bring it to life? How can we attract the best tech minds and businesses to work, live and invest in Taranaki, while also nurturing the talent that's already here and sharing our successes?

We’re proud to have brought Techweek to Taranaki for 2023 with an exciting schedule of events that showcased how our region is punching above its weight in tech innovation.

The overarching theme for 2023 was ‘Creating Tech for a Better Tomorrow’, supported by six narratives that helped the organisers shape their topics. These narratives were:

  • Becoming More Digital
  • Celebrating Tech Leaders and Tech Stories
  • Climate and Sustainable Tech
  • Diversity of Thought
  • Advancing Māori Tech
  • Inspiring Tech Careers
