As well as this, we provide an active exchange across industry boundaries, with firms and business beyond the realm of IT. The association holds numerous events to promote exchange of ideas, cooperation and knowledge growth. This includes the regular holding of forums, networks and seminars, as well as regular meets ups in more social and informal settings.
