​Canterbury Software rebrands to reflect changing Kiwi tech landscape

“Software, electronics, and communications are more intertwined than ever before."

Canterbury’s industry group for software companies, Canterbury Software, has broadened their community and rebranded to Canterbury Tech.

As one of the region’s leading professional association, Canterbury Tech aims to develop globally successful technology companies through collaboration and education for businesses small and large.

The non-profit organisation is run by a voluntary committee and has over 200 members.

“Software, electronics, and communications are more intertwined than ever before,” says Michael Trengrove, Chair, Canterbury Tech.

“Smart phones, robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and other areas have changed the tech landscape. We are broadening our membership base to include those tech companies who previously didn’t identify themselves as Software.”

Canterbury Tech is an industry group providing monthly networking events and an annual summit, one of the largest tech conferences in New Zealand.

Cluster members support each other with common matters including, exporting, attracting staff, growing from New Zealand, and others.

“We’re thrilled the Canterbury Software is re-positioning as Canterbury Tech,” adds Charlotte Walshe, CEO, Dynamic Controls.

“We think it better reflects the diversity within Canterbury’s tech industry and the depth and breadth of talent. It reinforces that tech innovation in Canterbury is broader than Software.”

As well as a new name for the organisation, Trengrove says the annual industry conference has rebranded to Canterbury Tech Summit, which is being held on September 15 at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram.
