Meet the team behind Te Pae Christchurch

30 October 2020

Karine is our Director of Event Services who brings to her role over 25 years’ experience planning and delivering customer service excellence in international and local tourism, venues and event sectors.


Large projects and pre-opening environments aren’t new for Karine, who was part of the team delivering the Eurostar and London Eye internationally. Locally, Karine has been involved with many of Ōtautahi Christchurch’s regeneration projects – including Addington Stadium, Hagley Oval, Ministry of Justice and now Te Pae Christchurch.
Karine loves Christchurch and enjoys being involved with projects that make a positive difference to the community.
“These projects are so important to Christchurch. Infrastructure like Te Pae Christchurch supports the whole city. It’s not just what happens inside the Convention Centre, it’s also about what happens outside of the event like the networking or restaurants and cafes that delegates engage with.”
The Event Services department at Te Pae Christchurch, directed by Karine, follows the same desire to bring people together. “Our philosophy is to plan and deliver every event with the same attention and passion for magical outcomes.”
