Event description


The annual Canterbury Tech Summit is on again in 2020, although it has been adapted to align with the new norms in conferencing.  Our over-arching theme carries even more weight as we look to Inspire, Connect and Grow together, however, the look and feel of the Summit has enjoyed a makeover to enable us to meet the needs of our valued Tech community. 

Being held more centrally, at Rydges Latimer Square, this year’s Summit has been split into two half-day sessions, inviting you to:

  • Innovate and Transform during the morning session (8.30am - 1.30pm), and to hear about;
  • The Next Wave of Applied Technology at the afternoon session (1.30pm - 6.30pm)

In the morning, high quality speakers (both home-grown and international) will join us to share their experiences and ideas on innovation, digital transformation and business agility, with a particular focus on assisting companies to navigate their path through the new post-COVID reality.

Presentations for the afternoon session will be of a more technical nature, focusing on new technologies and related innovations that are poised to have a positive impact both on our sector and associated industries.
