The largest technology brands in the world are CW members, alongside many companies that are giants in their own industrial sector. CW provides these with bespoke Innovation Programmes that accelerate R&D, personal development and knowledge sharing opportunities for all employees and a ready-made platform for talent acquisition.
The technology market is fundamentally global, so CW is proudly international in its membership and its outlook.

Equally UK companies can be supported to go global.

We have plentiful experience in building bespoke Innovation Programmes for the R&D teams of major multinationals that have helped them compete successfully in the digital world.
CW's extensive community of over 1000 technology organisations offers marketing teams who want to speak to some of the world's most innovative firms a great opportunity to position their stories in front of this audience. Members can share their news and blogs across the CW website, emails, social channels and within the CW Journal. And our events offer great speaking and exhibiting opportunities!

Sales is all about making the right connections, and this is where CW can help. From face-to-face networking at events to our more personalised introduction services, we can help you get in front of the businesses that you need to achieve your goals.
CW doesn't underestimate the importance of regulation and IP protection in the technology industry! Many of our events offer a legal and regulatory angle, driven by the Champions of our Legal Special Interest Group.
In the fast-changing tech landscape, there’s no substitute for hearing directly from the people shaping and steering our industry. Not only are we known for sharing the latest ideas, but also challenging debate, helping our members to learn from one another. Our knowledge sharing platforms include events, conferences, the resources library and the popular CW Journal.
Everything is interlinked and no company is an island. So, having a forum where you can easily meet everyone in your ecosystem is a game-changer. Whether they be upstream or downstream of your place in the value chain, making those connections helps build your own powerful network.
Great ideas need to be heard loud and clear by the people that matter. CW helps organisations build their public persona. Through CW events, sponsorship and speaking opportunities and online and print editorial opportunities, you can ensure that you build brand awareness by targeting the key individuals really at the heart of the industry.
