What

Te Pae Christchurch will be a world class convention and exhibition facility supported by nearby accommodation, retail and hospitality offerings. 

Te Pae (pronounced te pie) references a gathering place in Te Reo.

 

Why

Christchurch lacks appropriate convention facilities which limits the city's tourism potential, economic activity and diversity. The city's share of New Zealand's 'business event' market has dropped from >20% pre-quake to less than 10% now. As a result, ChristchurchNZ estimates we are currently missing out on about $90m of direct economic investment every year. This new facility is significantly larger than the former convention centre and will be able to accommodate two or more simultaneous events. 

How

Ōtākaro is responsible for the design and construction of Te Pae Christchurch. It will also work with parties interested in development opportunities for the remaining land in the precinct. 

When

The completion and opening of Te Pae Christchurch has been impacted by the Covid-19 restrictions.

For booking information please email info@tepae.co.nz or phone +64 3 266 1400.

Who else is involved?
  • CPB Contractors Limited has been appointed as the Main Contractor.
  • Te Pae was designed by Woods Bagot in conjunction with Warren and Mahoney.
  • Te Pae Christchurch will be operated by leading international venue management company ASM Global.
Funding

Te Pae Christchurch is being funded by the Crown.
