Meet the team behind Te Pae Christchurch

25 May 2021

Gillian Officer is our Director of Business Development, and with over 25 years’ experience working in convention centres across Aotearoa New Zealand, she has helped plan and execute many successful events.


Tasked with managing the Centre’s Business Development team, and securing a roster of events that will provide long term benefits to our city and its residents, it is her drive to help clients host memorable events that makes her a valuable and experienced asset in the lead up to our opening this year.

Te Pae Christchurch's Business Development team is committed to working closely with clients to fulfil their needs and achieve success. They are enthusiastic and driven to bring the city of Ōtautahi Christchurch to the national and international events market.

“All our events at Te Pae Christchurch are going to benefit the community of Christchurch and wider New Zealand by bringing in visitation above and beyond what’s already here,” says Gillian.

“The level of interest we are seeing in the venue is heartening, with enquiries starting to translate into a strong schedule of bookings. Our whole team is looking forward to delivering great events for our clients when we open.”
