New Zealand brings a unique perspective to how we think about and use technology. It’s a perspective the world needs now, more than ever to help create technology that will build a better tomorrow.

Please join us at the official launch with special guest speakers including the Hon David Clark, Minister for the Digital Economy and Communications. You will also hear from tech industry leaders about why our Tech Story is important and how businesses can use it.

The Tech Story is a marketing initiative, created in collaboration with industry and government, that delivers a compelling, consistent way of promoting our tech capabilities to the world. Its aim is to help our tech businesses grow by attracting investment, talent and global sales.

The New Zealand Tech and Innovation Story (Tech Story) has been developed as a workstream of the Digital Technologies Industry Transformation Plan (Digital Technologies ITP). Our vision is that the Tech Story will have a lasting, positive impact for our tech businesses and New Zealand.
