Te Pae Christchurch Welcomes Travel Bubble Announcement

6 April 2021

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre welcomes the New Zealand Government’s announcement of a quarantine-free travel bubble with Australia commencing April 19.

Te Pae Christchurch General Manager Ross Steele says the past 12 months have been challenging for the Centre’s clients and the business events industry as a whole.

“Despite border closures and uncertainty, working closely with our Australian clients and peers has remained a key focus for us,” Mr Steele says.

“Over the past several months we have reinforced our commitment to the Australian market, appointing an in-market Business Development Manager, Heidi Heming to represent Te Pae Christchurch, and continuing to support industry activity wherever possible.

“We, like many in our industry, have looked forward to this announcement and we believe it will provide our Australian clients with the confidence they need to plan ahead.

“With a number of Australasian conferences already booked and trans-Tasman travel now back on the table, we look forward to reconnecting with clients and friends when welcoming them to Ōtautahi Christchurch and Te Pae Christchurch once we open later this year.”
