About Te Pae

The Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre has recently opened in central Christchurch. A key part of the regeneration of the city, the venue is attracting domestic and international events — as an architectural and social landmark designed as a welcoming heart in the centre of the city.

Looking out over the Ōtākaro Avon River promenade, right in the heart of Christchurch CBD, Te Pae is a world-class venue. All presentations will be held on the first floor, with food, drinks, research-wine tasting, and exhibits in the Exhibition Hall on the ground floor.


Special accommodation rates

Te Pae Christchurch’s position in the city centre makes staying for a conference easy and convenient. Bragato Research Institute has secured special rates for the event at various price points, but all within a 5 or 10 minute stroll from the venue, allowing attendees to explore the heart of the city.


Crowne Plaza

Located in Central Christchurch just minutes from CBD dining, shopping and entertainment, Crowne Plaza Christchurch offers modern accommodation and dining options. Overlooking historic Victoria Square and the iconic Avon River, you’ll be in the perfect spot to connect with Christchurch, or meet with colleagues, clients or friends in Market Place Restaurant & Bar.
