Wellington venues partner under Tākina Events brand

Wellington’s soon to open convention centre Tākina and Te Papa Venues have combined under one banner.

Two Wellington venues have combined to operate under the one banner Tākina Events.

Tākina, Wellington’s new convention and exhibition centre opening in mid-2023, and Te Papa Venues have partned under the one brand to enable business events planners to access and book the spaces and services of the two conference venues together.

“What is already an exciting new asset for Wellington, combined with the venue spaces at Te Papa under one operation, now gives us an opportunity to deliver unique events on a scale the capital hasn’t seen before,” said Tākina Events general manager Andrew Dorrington.

“And joining forces will help to support the promotion of the capital as a vibrant destination for hosting local and international events.

“With flexible spaces, built-in technology and celebrating local cuisine in the heart of Wellington, and one dedicated team to run the operation means clients – and delegates – benefit from a more efficient service across both buildings.”
