Christhchurch Convention Centre links

Christchurch, New Zealand's most charming city, has been created with the pleasure of its inhabitants in mind. Centrally situated within the city is New Zealand's only purpose-built convention centre. The halls of the new Christchurch Convention Centre comprise over 1,864 square metres of pillarless and carpeted flat floor space, an ideal environment for conventions, exhibitions, trade shows and gala events of all types. The design incorporates a glass-fronted foyer, main hall with 8m high ceiling and capacity to seat 2,200 delegates theatre style or 1,350 at a gala dinner. Seven break-out rooms on the first floor can be configured to accomodate between 30 and 130 delegates each.

The Christchurch Convention Centre is connected to the Town Hall performing arts and cultural complex by a pedestrian airbridge. For larger conventions and events, the venues operate as one exceptionally versatile unit. These premier public assembly facilities are designed for one thing - to help people meet people.
