Techweek 2021 is back in Taranaki

New Zealand’s technology and innovation event Techweek 2021 returns to Taranaki for its fourth year from 22 – 30 May, with a dozen events on offer showcasing and celebrating Taranaki and Aotearoa innovations. 

An annual nationwide festival of innovation, Techweek is a platform for people to meet, share ideas and create connections to enhance our future world. Techweek Taranaki 2021 is curated by Venture Taranaki, the region’s economic development agency.   

“Right around Taranaki Maunga you will find innovative and entrepreneurially spirited people.” says Michelle Jordan, Venture Taranaki General Manager Enterprise.

“Techweek gives them the opportunity to connect and collaborate, as well as providing the Taranaki community with the chance to engage with tech and innovation. With Aotearoa’s technology and innovation sectors rapidly growing Techweek is a chance to raise the sector’s profile while inspiring the community, enterprises, and tech-lovers with the range of events on offer.”

“With a diverse mix of events there’s something for everyone in the programme; you can learn how to build a 3D model, hear from experts talking about all things digital, and new technologies that could help boost your business.  Other events have a focus on food and fibre possibilities, how we can use tech to protect our environment, and hands-on hydrogen demonstrations.”           

New to Techweek Taranaki 2021 is the Techweek Hub located at DoBox in New Plymouth’s Quarterbank. This Hub will house virtual and live events with technology available for people to engage with and try out. Visitors to the Techweek Hub will also be able to talk to the Venture Taranaki team and others about R&D, digital boost, AI, the raising of capital, and the role of technology in our community.

“We’re delighted to bring Techweek Taranaki to the region again. Technology is an integral part of our lives and our economy, and Techweek is one way to connect our community with some very cool technology, individuals and organisations. We encourage everyone to explore the events on offer and register through the Techweek website so they don’t miss out,” continues Michelle.

Venture Taranaki is a connector and curator, and proud to facilitate Techweek 2021 in Taranaki,  supporting and sharing the stories, innovations and entrepreneurial spirit of the region.
