New Zealand’s world-class conference and event venues are sure to inspire.


Those looking to host a major international conference will benefit from the development of three new purpose-built, next generation convention centres in our major cities. 

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre opened in December 2021, offering 28,000sqm of flexible event space including a 1,400-seat tiered auditorium, divisible into two 700-seat venues.  

Meanwhile the New Zealand International Convention Centre in Auckland (theatre capacity 2,850) and Tākina - Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre (theatre capacity 1,600) are currently under construction. 

These are in addition to excellent large-scale event options in the regional centres, including Claudelands in Waikato (6,000 theatre-style), the Energy Events Centre in Rotorua (4,000 theatre-style), and Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin (2,500 theatre-style). 

If you’re after something more unique, New Zealand offers a range of atmospheric event venues, from heritage buildings to wineries, waterfront function spaces to museums and art galleries. 

Many of our wide variety of accommodation providers offer event spaces too – from major international brand hotels to five-star boutique properties and luxury lodges. 

There's a venue to suit every event. To find your best fit, talk to our team.
