Techweek'18 Waikato to showcase the strength of tech in the region
23 March 2018

The Waikato technology sector is thriving, and a week-long regional technology symposium is being planned this May to capture that momentum.

Hamilton recorded $109 million regional revenue growth among its top tech companies in 2017 which, at 21.7 per cent in revenue growth, makes Waikato the fastest growing tech region in the country according to the 2017 Technology Investment Network (TIN) report.

Building on that momentum is Techweek’18 Waikato, a local initiative that runs in parallel with the nationwide Techweek’18 festival led by NZTech and supported by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE). The theme of Techweek’18 is ‘innovation that is good for the world’.
