Te Pae will be a world class conventions and exhibitions facility supported by nearby accommodation, retail and hospitality offerings. In a competitive environment where convention centres around the world are expanding their capacity to accommodate larger events, Te Pae will be a boutique facility, set in a well organised and compact, regenerating city.
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 the Te Pae. It will also work with parties interested in development opportunities for the remaining land in the precinct.
Te Pae is scheduled to open in October 2020.

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 is being funded by the Crown.
