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.

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.

Sign up for the monthly ENC newsletter to ensure you are the first to know about upcoming networking events and other important business events in the North Canterbury area.
