Te Pae Christchurch Opens New Generation Gathering Place
17 December 2021
The future is looking bright for Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre ahead of its ceremonial opening today.
The first of three brand new international standard convention centres to open in New Zealand, Te Pae Christchurch has a solid roster of events on its books, including over 50 multi-day conferences, and a number of other events ranging from exhibitions to live entertainment, banquets and smaller meetings and seminars.
Te Pae Christchurch General Manager Ross Steele said while there was a strong contingent of domestic bookings in the first year, it had been pleasing to see the return of interest and bookings from international markets, particularly Australia.
“We can see that people are missing that connection that only comes with being face-to-face, and we know there is pent up demand for New Zealand, in particular Christchurch, so it’s been great see interest translate to bookings for later in 2022 and beyond.”
