Thank you for putting on such a great seminar last week, extremely informative, and great to see such a good turnout.

This event was my first ‘In Person’ meeting with the NZDIA since joining. 
I found the information and agenda helped decide whether or not to travel and attend in person. The speakers and presentations were very open and clear. I got what I wanted and expected out of topics.
I particularly like the video recordings to allow my report to be correct and not from scribbled notes completely. All in all I found the event was very well organised and the networking definitely helped get in touch with the people we wanted to meet.

Thanks so much for your hospitality at the NZDIA Members Meeting. Really enjoyed it and hopefully it is the start of things to come as we look to get more engaged with the Defence Industry, so that we can help to support the upcoming works by implementing more sustainable and cost-effective solutions.

Loop Technologies is an SME offering a range of electronics services, and as part of our company strategy we decided to pursue Defence opportunities within NZ. When we looked at the industry, there was no easy way for us to directly establish a profile.  Our first decision was to join the NZDIA, to provide us with a single point of entry.  Since then the NZDIA has given us many and varied opportunities to engage – introductions, information, networking events and the ability to exhibit to a wide audience of interested defence and security players.  NZDIA membership has easily been the best approach we could have taken to gain access to key people within Defence.
