A growing, thriving city: Te Pae General Manager Ross Steele

I was interested to read the information from the 2023 Census released recently, which shows the greater Christchurch population grew nearly 10% between 2018 and 2023.

Surely this is confirmation that Christchurch is New Zealand’s second largest city, with the greater Christchurch regional population well exceeding greater Wellington.

It was also exciting to learn that our city is becoming more diverse and multicultural. At Te Pae Christchurch, we pride ourselves on being an international standard convention centre and with our diverse workforce representing more than 35 nationalities, our team are representative of our new world city.

Having a diverse team is important for Te Pae, ensuring a flow of fresh and innovative ideas for our organisation. The key ingredient that binds us all together is the opportunity to make a difference to this city, in which we all call home. We are passionate about hosting national and international delegates for a wide range of events, proud to put our revitalised city and region on the world stage and to celebrate the cultural heritage that is reflected throughout our award-winning building.

While we have one of the finest convention centres in the world, it is our people that make it world-class.

It doesn’t matter where we come from, the important thing is that we have all made Christchurch our home. It is inspiring to see our city and region thriving and growing, long may that continue.
