Wellington is at the geographical heart of New Zealand with easy access via any mode of transport. Wellington Airport is just a 15-minute drive from Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre and Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, ensuring your delegates can make the most of their time in the capital.

Tākina Events’ city centre venues are within easy walking distance of key transport links, Wellington’s world-class hospitality scene, entertainment and recreation options, and thousands of accommodation rooms.


Wellington is known for its government agencies, world-class education institutes, blockbuster filmmakers, and its strengths in creative technologies, scientific research, information and technology, and public and professional services.

Our collaborative nature makes it easier to engage government officials and local industry leaders in your conference or event at Tākina or Te Papa, ensuring top content and headline speakers.

Experiences beyond the agenda

Wellington's creative heart and natural beauty provide countless activities to entertain delegates outside the international convention centre.

Walk Wellington’s picturesque waterfront or browse its vintage shops and laneways. Get a taste of local culture with museums, galleries, and theatre, or sink your teeth into the city’s lively foodie scene.

Align your conference with a festival from Wellington’s jam-packed events and festival calendar to deliver maximum impact for visiting delegates. There’s something to appeal to everyone, from fashion to food.

Beyond the CBD, Wellington’s rugged coastlines, forests, and award-winning Wairarapa wine region are perfect for pre- or post-event exploration.
