Alliance Agreement between Canterbury Tech and the NZ Technology Industry Association (NZTech)
We are always working to promote our member companies and our vibrant local tech sector and are excited about the opportunity this partnership presents. We will certainly have a stronger voice through NZTech at a national level.
Members of the Canterbury Tech Cluster will become “associate members” of NZTech. NZTech will promote Canterbury Tech on its website which has significant national and international traffic. Canterbury Tech members will be identified as associate members of NZTech and members of Canterbury Tech.
Members of the Tech Cluster will also benefit from a reduced cost of becoming a full membership of NZTech Association. If you are not currently a member of NZTech, and would like to join, you will have the opportunity to do so for the difference in cost i.e. if you paid $350 for our Canterbury Tech Business Silver membership you would normally need to pay $750 for NZTech Corporate membership but through our new partnership agreement you would only need to pay NZTech $400.
We are delighted at the addition benefits this partnership provides our company members.
