New Zealand’s Festival of Tech & Innovation

Techweek 2022 is back in Taranaki in May, showcasing the innovation and technology in our region.

Techweek is a nationwide series of events, showcasing and celebrating New Zealand innovation. It provides a platform for people 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.

Techweek is 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!

Venture Taranaki is proud to be the curator of the Techweek festival for the fifth year running. We support a wide range of free events – from business digitisation, the future of energy, ai and marine conservation, creating electronic music, to a careers expo event and much more...

Techweek is a fantastic platform to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories, and Taranaki will proudly showcase its innovative spirit and long tradition of game-changing ideas once again.

The overarching theme for 2022 is ‘Connecting for a Better Future’, and chosen themes help anchor Techweek and guide event organisers with topic selection. Event themes this year include

  • Skills & knowledge
  • Digital transformation
  • Climate & sustainability
  • Global impact
  • Leaders & innovation
  • Māori tech participation
