NZTech is delighted to announce that Techweek is returning from 20-26 May 2024. For a decade Aotearoa New Zealand’s festival for tech that’s good for the world has brought New Zealanders together to collectively imagine our future.
Whether you’re looking to connect, upskill or be inspired by new and emerging technologies, Techweek has something for you. From conferences to meet-ups, from hackathons to family days — this week is our chance to celebrate the world-first, world-class tech that’s being created right here in Aotearoa New Zealand, for the world.
It all culminates with the the New Zealand tech sector’s night of nights, the NZ Hi-Tech Awards Gala Dinner, when we gather to celebrate the momentum of our 2nd largest export sector, and it’s contribution to New Zealand’s economy.
Why do we run Techweek?
We run Techweek because we know technology is critical for the future prosperity of New Zealand. It’s the fastest growing segment of our economy, generating 8% of our GDP and 11% of our exports. To support NZ technology’s continued growth we need a deeply connected ecosystem; more rangatahi choosing tech careers; and more global awareness of New Zealand’s tech strengths and capabilities. The nationwide Techweek programme provides the platform to do this.
NZTech’s vision is for an equitable, sustainable, safe and prosperous New Zealand enabled by good tech. We connect, promote and advance to grow the tech sector in pursuit of that vision — Techweek is just one example of our work.
The nationwide Techweek programme is developed and curated locally by our regional partners. With local programmes and events created by local people, Techweek New Zealand is globally unique in presenting a grass roots, authentic national festival that accelerates the growth of New Zealand’s incredible tech sector.
Techweek24’s strategic pillars
Techweek’s strategic pillars shape the Techweek24 programme, and help guide our event organiser community to create events that will have a tangible impact on the growth of New Zealand technology for the benefit of all New Zealanders. We work with strategic partners across the public and private sectors to bring these pillars to life during Techweek.
