Techweek is New Zealand’s largest innovation and technology festival that was brought to Taranaki for the first time by Venture Taranaki in 2018, and grown for 2019.

The event seeks to showcase, engage, connect and inspire cool ideas and creative people, leading innovations, and cutting-edge technologies.
Venture Taranaki act as the regional organisers and curators, working with a range of local and national groups, individuals, venues and audiences to put together the programme here in Taranaki.
“Taranaki people are proudly creative and Techweek gives them a chance to see what’s happening in the technology and innovation space and foster more of that legendary innovation,” says VT’s Natacha Dunn, Techweek’s Taranaki organiser.

“The programme seeks to offer something for everyone in the programme, and over the first two events has included everything from food-tech seminars to technology movies, a virtual reality showcase to programming workshops, and opportunities to engage with innovation platforms to a pedal-powered cinema,” Natacha says.
