Christchurch’s Vbase rebrands to Venues Ōtautahi

Christchurch based event venue manager Vbase is rebranding to Venues Ōtautahi.

The city council-owned company manages events at Christchurch Arena and the Town Hall, in addition to the Airforce Museum, Orangetheory Stadium and Hagley Oval on behalf of other venue owners.

“Venues Ōtautahi reflects who we are and what we do, deepening our connection with the community and our cultural heritage,” said Vbase chief executive Caroline Harvie-Teare.

“This change is also the company brand taking a step back and making these community owned venues the heroes.

“With a focus on continuing to deliver positive benefits to local Canterbury businesses through celebrating and sourcing local food and beverage and on building the community’s connection with and accessibility to their venues a repositioning of the brand is key to further unlocking the potential of both.”

The transition is expected to be completed by the end of March.
