Ngā wānanga Conferences

Tākina Events includes two iconic centrally located sites – Tākina and Te Papa. Together they redefine conferences in Wellington.

Versatile spaces

We know versatility is vital for your conference venue. Now you have the choice of two neighbouring sites, offering endless possibilities for how you want your event to run.

Ambience and character define Te Papa, our national museum. Its spaces welcome your guests to soak up the history, art, and culture and take in sweeping views of Wellington’s iconic harbour.

Across the road is Tākina, the city’s newest purpose-built conference venue, is the ideal stage for an impactful event. With its stunning architecture, intelligent spaces, and cutting-edge technology this venue has the wow-factor.

Destination Wellington

Both sites are in the heart of Wellington, neighbours on the city’s iconic waterfront. The city’s world-famous cafés, bars and restaurants are a short walk in any direction. Wellington International Airport is just 15 minutes away, so your delegates can make the most of their time in the capital.

Our food philosophy

Ideas, like people, need nourishing. Our chefs create menus designed to feed creativity and imagination, while giving your guests a taste of Aotearoa's provenance, culture and talent.

Local networks

Tākina means to invoke, connect, and bring forth. As part of a national institution, we can connect you with respected government officials, industry experts and leading academics to bring something special to your event.

"thank you for having a sensational team behind you that makes moving forward into a partnership with the new Convention Centre and a new dawn of business events for Wellington an absolute pleasure to be part of.”
