Enterprise North Canterbury and sponsor businesses bring you North Canterbury Business Network Functions throughout the North Canterbury region. These functions have been a regular highlight on the business calendar for several years.

At our evening functions between 80 and 120 people come together to share a relaxed wind-down after work and listen to guest speakers who present thought-provoking commentary on current events. Drinks and nibbles are provided and attendees always find that they make a number of good contacts with other business people or service providers.

We also provide a tabletop expo opportunity for our business partners so that you can explore what they offer at your leisure. There is no cost to attend these functions.

At our breakfast events 30-40 people attend to learn specialist information about specific topics of interest while enjoying a breakfast. There is usually a cost to attend breakfast events (to cover the cost of the breakfast), but the connections and information you gain are invaluable.

ENC staff are always available to explain the full range of services that ENC offers.
