Callaghan Innovation is once again proud to support Techweek.  Techweek2020 is about connecting our future, focusing on business, community and education.

27 July to 2 August 2020
Across New Zealand

Techweek2020 is a national celebration of tech innovation presented by NZTech.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Techweek2020 is moving to July and will only involve digital events.  Moving Techweek2020 to late July gives Techweek the opportunity to be a channel and platform for positive regrowth, economic stimulation and connections during the COVID-19 recovery phase.

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with Techweek for this year’s revamped digital event. The new format provides a great opportunity for Callaghan Innovation to collaborate digitally with the business and tech community as we plan for life beyond COVID-19,” Bruce Jarvis, Acting General Manager Market, Engagement, Experience and Sectors.
