As you will be aware, we at ITP are taking a very proactive approach to ensuring the safety of our guests at ITP events in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic. This includes postponing events where over 100 attendees are expected and a range of other precautions at smaller events.

We've had to make the unfortunate decision that, due to current uncertainty and anxiety around the coronavirus, we will be cancelling the student meet industry event. While we would have loved to host you, our commitment to the wellbeing of our community has to come first. 

The circumstances around Covid-19 are fast moving and while there was a chance we could still proceed with this event, we've opted to make this decision early to provide you some certainty. 

Our intention is to run an alternative student/industry event later in the year instead and will provide more details in due course.


The popular annual ITP "Students meet Industry" BBQ is an excellent opportunity for future IT Professionals to mix and mingle with industry folk informally over a BBQ (includes vegan and gluten-free options).

This year the BBQ is being held at the University of Canterbury Club (87 Ilam road - opposite Canterbury University). The club has a large BBQ area overlooking their beautiful gardens and offers a range of drinks for purchase. Drinking water will be freely available.

This is a great and fun event for both students and those working in the industry and we strongly encourage you to come along and support
this event.

Students, this is your opportunity to:

Meet those already in the ICT Industry.
Learn about future employment opportunities.
Start making those important contacts with your future employer of choice.
You really need to be here!

Industry folk, this is your opportunity to:

Meet ICT Students who could be future employees.
Find out what the next generation are up to and meet some great people
Give a short introduction on what your company does and what it can offer to graduates.
We really need your support for this event.

Your local ITP representatives will be out in force, too - come and talk to us about your ICT issues and ideas.


This event is supported by UC and Ara
