Haere mai Welcome to Land and Water Innovation Showcase.

Be inspired by Te Tai Tokerau Northland’s leading environmental innovators and changemakers.

Join us for Techweek'18, New  Zealand’s  annual  festival  of  innovation and an expert speaker panel and expo as we discover how Te Tai Tokerau Northland is leading the way in land and water innovation across the globe.

One of the central challenges of the twenty first century is our transition to a sustainable economy. Hidden in amongst the Kauri trees and pools of snapper at the top of New Zealand, are local organisations with local people who spend their days working on better, cleaner, faster and safer ways to achieve these sustainable practices. Why? Because Northland’s sub-tropical climate, vast un-touched land and ‘yes’ attitudes create the perfect conditions for land and water innovation to succeed.

If you love science and business and even if you don’t! the insights from our expert panelists are bound to inspire you!
