Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre

Amid the pandemic coronavirus risk, the construction work of New Zealand’s NZ$179 million Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre (WCEC) is slightly ahead of its reconstruction agenda.

All 220 piles have been put in place and 60 per cent of the base layer concrete had been poured when the Alert Level Four lockdown was imposed by the government of New Zealand. The construction work is under way again as New Zealand moves to Alert Level Three.

This newest 18,000 sq.m. Conference facility is extended across two floors capable of hosting multiple smaller conferences simultaneously or a large convention of up to 1400 delegates.

 Earlier in the month of April this convention centre has announced a virtual planning tool to help users create and develop their own event floor plans, whilst becoming more familiar with the rooms and flexibility of the centre throughout the construction period.

Wellington NZ Regional Development Destination and Attraction general manager David Perks says that while the meetings and events industry is currently severely impacted by Covid-19, he is hearing how the industry is preparing to organise conferences and events as soon as it’s safe to do so.
