One year from opening, over 70 conferences are already in the calendar for Tākina, Wellington’s new premium, purpose-built convention and exhibition centre.

Located in the heart of Wellington’s cultural precinct and on track to open mid-2023, Tākina will be a meaningful place to connect and collaborate.

Among the lineup of events confirmed for Tākina are Festival for The Future, the annual conferences of the New Zealand Veterinary Association, Federated Farmers of New Zealand and the New Zealand Aged Care Association.

Sitting across two levels and ideal for conferences with a plenary of up to 1,600 delegates, Tākina sits at the centre of New Zealand’s compact, walkable capital.

Australian professional conference organiser Jessica Ferguson of Arinex says she’s looking forward to the opportunity Tākina will bring. 

“The small but mighty capital of New Zealand is full of flavour that is sure to enhance any business event that selects it as host city. Wellington is a city that allows a conference to truly own the destination and showcases the warmest manaakitanga welcome and kiwi hospitality to all who visit.”

The convention centre will be operated by Tākina Events alongside conference venue and national museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa, enabling business event organisers to access and book the spaces and services of two of Wellington’s premium conference venues together. Situated just across the road from each other in the heart of the vibrant, walkable capital, it’s also ideal for delegates.
