More than 40 events will be held as part of this year's Techweek Dunedin programme.

The programme was launched this week for the event, which will be held from May 20 to May 26, focusing on innovation.

The programme included keynote speakers, panel discussions, business seminars and demonstrations, student workshops, women in tech and family-focused activities.

Events came under two key categories: those that build capability and those that inspire the next generation.

There was a great line-up of events in more than 25 venues across the city, including more than 60 speakers, Techweek 19 Dunedin regional co-ordinator Lauren Saker said.

People could submit new events until Monday, April 15 and the full calendar would be published on May 1.

A popular highlight of Techweek was the family-friendly Dunedin TEXpo which would be held on May 25.

That was a joint event hosted by Otago Polytechnic and the University of Otago held across two sites - the University of Otago Business School and the Otago Polytechnic Hub.

It would include interactive displays and stalls from local tech companies, the polytechnic and university, hi-tech innovations that staff and students had produced or were using, and hands-on interactions with a variety of new and emerging technologies.

It was also an opportunity to browse active areas in Dunedin's growing tech sector and talk to people from a range of companies succeeding globally.
