This will be the fourth year that Creative Northland has officiated the national event for our area in Whangarei and Northland.
“In 2012, technology industry association NZTech began a Tech Innovation Week to coincide with the Hi-Tech Awards, to build enthusiasm around new technologies being developed in New Zealand. In 2018, the festival continued to build momentum with 540 events running across the country. 2021 will be the fifth iteration of the nationwide festival.
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, using an independent platform to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.
In the years to come, Techweek’s vision is for New Zealand to be globally recognised as a beautiful country where world-leading solutions are born. It’s not just about showcasing leading edge technology, but amplifying brilliant ideas that are solving the biggest global challenges – innovation that’s good for the world.
