June 2019


Calling all techpreneurs, disruptors and technology ecosystem leaders, this year’s Canterbury Tech Summit promises to be even bigger and better than before, embodying our commitment to Grow, Connect and Inspire the burgeoning South Island tech community.

Over the years we have worked hard to position the Canterbury Tech Summit as Aotearoa’s premier tech event of the year, attracting over 700 of New Zealand’s brightest minds and technology advocates and educators to converge and connect at Christchurch’s Air Force Museum, the emotional home of this tech mecca.

Helping you to navigate the strategic trends and technologies that are driving digital transformation and shaping the future of IT and business, we have an inspiring line-up of event speakers. Split across three streams speakers will drive focus on everything from AI to AR, from Blockchain to Cybersecurity and from OT to IoT and, as usual, there will be a pulsing hub of energy created by the many associated exhibition stands.

The speaker line-up for 2019 is second to none and following the success of last year’s event, there will be ample opportunity to interact with industry experts, cutting-edge solution providers and peers, all on hand to help you uncover innovative ways to approach challenges, make decisions with confidence and become even more effective as leaders in your tech space.


Whether you are a founder, dev lead, data analyst, business manager, student, or a professional who supports the industry, this Summit is for everyone with an interest in the tech sector.

Our aim is to help people make the impossible possible, to solve problems with new ideas, to develop collaborative opportunities, and to amplify the potential of your business-critical tech environment.
