From a phenomenal location to world-class purpose-built facilities, Te Pae offers an experience like no other.
Opening in 2020, centrally located within Christchurch, New Zealand’s most hospitable business events city, Te Pae is much more than a traditional convention centre. It is a gathering place for the 21st century, where the world comes together to share, learn, be hosted and entertained. One meaning of Te Pae is gathering place.
With a striking design, the building itself is an iconic landmark in a flourishing cityscape. Influences of our majestic southern landscape are interwoven into the exterior, making it a physical representation of New Zealand, our culture and the stories of our people.
Our central South Island location and proximity to the city’s airport offer ideal access to be able to enjoy the best of New Zealand’s legendary South Island pre or post-event. Adventure-ready year round, all four seasons have something unique and special to offer.
Te Pae is a world-class venue purpose designed to be flexible and responsive to every event requirement. With 28,000m2 of space designed to constantly adapt we can customise a space and experience to meet your unique needs.
Every space within Te Pae has been carefully designed with the needs of service providers, organisers and attendees in mind.
From boutique and intimate conferences for a few hundred, to grand large-scale conventions or trade exhibitions with thousands of attendees – we can also host concurrent events simultaneously.
