Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre

Updates every 15 minutes
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.
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.
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.
An official opening event for Te Pae Christchurch was held in December 2021. A public open day is scheduled for 13 February 2022.
