Techweek 2018

What is Techweek?

In 2017, Tai Tokerau Northland hosted 15 events representing businesses, schools and the tech community. People came together to host and create amazing experiences for this week long festival – thank you!

In 2018, it’s going to be bigger and better!

To amplify a tech / innovation story across New Zealand and the world; inspire others or build capability in a business, school or in their community – this is what the festival is about.

Techweek’18 will showcase stories of innovation and tech that are ‘Pai mō te ao; innovation that is good for the world’
