From a phenomenal location to world-class purpose-built facilities, Te Pae offers an experience like no other.
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.
With the city currently undergoing an exciting and ambitious urban regeneration, Te Pae’s prime position on the banks of the picturesque Avon River has been cherry-picked for its charming natural beauty and easy access to the compact and dynamic CBD. Modern retail, accommodation, dining, business and leisure opportunities can be found in abundance within a pleasantly walkable vicinity.
Te Pae is a world-class venue purpose designed to be flexible and responsive to every event requirement. From boutique and intimate conferences for a few hundred, to grand large-scale conventions or trade exhibitions with a couple of thousand attendees, we can customise a space and experience to meet your unique needs.
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.
Te Pae’s 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 season have something unique and special to offer.
