With Techweek2021 kicking off in less than two weeks' time, there are hundreds of events taking place all across New Zealand. This year, we're stepping up our game and hosting four events throughout the week (three in Auckland, one in Wellington) - so if you haven't got your Techweek plans sorted yet, make sure you check these out. There's something for everyone, from students to C-Suite...get amongst it, whānau!
