Tech Events

Canterbury Tech related events

We run a series of Tech related events throughout the year ranging from our monthly networking events typically with a technical and business stream to our workshop series and our main event of the year; the Canterbury Tech Summit.

Note: During Covid-19, Alert level 4, 3 and 2 in New Zealand, we ran our monthly events online.  Scroll down this page for links to the recordings now available on YouTube. Now in level one we have moved to a hybrid event model so our audience can also view online.  Recordings of these events can also be found below.

Monthly Events

Canterbury Tech organises a series of 9 monthly events throughout the year. These are usually from 5.30pm on the first Tuesday of the month at one of our company member offices. At these events industry experts come along and share their knowledge of particular topics. We have both business and technical presentations. Industry experts present on topics ranging from agile development to capital raising and latest industry updates. At the end of the year we host our AGM followed by a fun quiz evening. Our meetings provide excellent networking opportunities and a great chance for everyone to meet and make contacts in a relaxed environment with craft beer, wine and nibbles provided. These events are typically for around 100 to 150 people and are free to attend for members (casual fee is $30+GST per event). Please note that we do sometimes have a limit on numbers so registering early is recommended to avoid disappointment.
