Tech Week 2023: We’re trying something new!

Tech Week 2023

As you will know our friends at NZ Tech and the Tech Alliance curate a nationwide NZ Tech Week each year in May.

Canterbury Tech has partnered with the EPIC Centre on Manchester Street to create a central Hub which will run from Monday 15th May – Saturday 20th May.

Christchurch NZ and EPIC centre have joined us as Supporting Partners.

We heard from other regions that having a hub where they are lots of things going on in one central place helps to create a great atmosphere and increases the networking and collaboration opportunities so we thought we would give it a crack! Having a hub means we can host groups, businesses or charities that don’t have suitable venues to host and means you can see a few things in one day.

We have decided on a structure for each day:

  • Monday 15 May The future of Transport
  • Tuesday 16 May The future of Health
  • Wednesday 17 May The future of Food & climate resilience
  • Thursday 18 May The future of Business + pathways to tech  + job fair
  • Friday19 May The future of Tech + Monster Meet Up & Evening Soiree

There are awesome Sponsorship opportunities including Sponsoring a day, our party or coffee – we plan to have barrister coffee and food trucks on site.

If you’d like to submit an event for consideration then apply  leaving the venue and date blank and then get in touch at to discuss. Our committee will then compile a fantastic schedule from the submissions. If we can’t accommodate your event you are still welcome to run it at another venue
