It has a flourishing information and communications technology industry, boasting innovative start-ups alongside established brands like Xero. It’s also known for its proximity to the Martinborough wine region and has carved out a name in the arts scene, hosting the annual World of Wearable Art international fashion event.
Wellington is a compact city with a multitude of meeting and conference spaces within walking distance of accommodation, restaurants and entertainment. The under-construction Tākina - Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre will have capacity to host up to 1,700 delegates.
