SIGNAL event highlights from Techweek19

Tuesday June 25, 2019

Techweek 2019 once again showcased the inspiring innovation and creative technologies being produced in our country. 

SIGNAL put on eight events across Christchurch and Dunedin,  which attracted over three hundred guests.

A highlight was Signal’s four Smart City events featuring Tim Packer of Bucketlabs, ex NEC Smart Cities Solutions Team Lead. These events were co-sponsored by SIGNAL and 2Degrees.  One of these was an on-campus event, partnering with the University of Canterbury - College of Engineering.

In Dunedin, Tim Packer featured in a Techweek Highlight Event, 'Shaping Dunedin's Future with SmartCity Technologies' Panel Discussion, including Tim Packer, Pete Hodgson, and 'Innovator of the Year 2019' Ian Taylor.

This year Signal hosted Techweek TV in Dunedin on Thursday May 23, with ten sessions showcasing twenty-four local tech specialists and eco-system stalwarts.

A highlight for us was the 'Shift to a tech career in less than a year' TV interview, featuring SHIFT graduates, Julia Pye and Jess Wren, discussing their journey into tech with Signal's SHIFT programme. This session and all Techweek TV 2019 videos are available to watch online.
