techweek 2019

Techweek is New Zealand’s annual festival of innovation, with hundreds of events set to run across New Zealand during Techweek19, from 20-26 May. Techweek19 continues to focus on the theme of innovation that’s good for the 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 cross-pollination, using an independent platform to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.

 At Te Aka Mauri, we have put together a calendar of events and activities to promote technology for all age-groups. We encourage people to come along and try new things.
