Head to the hub.

If you’re less than enthusiastic while stacking the dishwasher after dinner tonight, spare a thought for the Ōtakaro team.

Members of the team have been rapidly unpacking, cleaning and storing almost 8500 wine glasses, 7500 teacups and matching saucers, and much more at Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre, ahead of the first events later this year.

Over a three-week period, up to eight trucks a day will be arriving at the centre to deliver every item needed to host the finest events in the city.
You may even spot the additional traffic from over the road at Tūranga, where you will find our new interactive information station about New Zealand’s only purpose-built convention centre.

The display features an augmented reality experience that will take you inside the facility before the doors even swing open.

There’s also a detailed 3D model of the building and a sample braided-river façade panel to give a greater appreciation of the intricate design.

We know that while the vast majority of people believe Te Pae Christchurch will be of real benefit to the city, far less of you feel you know much about the facility. What better way to rectify this than by putting everything you need to know on display in the neighbouring knowledge hub.

It’ll be a far easier way to get an understanding of Te Pae Christchurch’s inner workings than drying the 9000 side plates being unpacked.
