Variety is the spice: Te Pae Christchurch General Manager Ross Steele

As business events flood into our city, the variety of businesses convening to showcase best practice never ceases to amaze me.

Te Pae Christchurch, General Manager, Ross Steele
Take just some of the events Te Pae Christchurch hosted in August:
The NZ Crane Association, where delegates enjoyed lunch around three huge cranes in exhibition halls.
Local Government NZ conference, strongly representing our region, with the opening by Christchurch Mayor Phil Mauger and the election of Selwyn District Mayor Sam Broughton as president.
The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research International Biology Symposium – significant for our city, one of only five gateways to the Antarctic.
The Potatoes Conference – a mainstay of our agricultural economy.
South GPs – at the front lines of our health system, and sharing new medical practices.
The Backpacker, Youth and Adventure Tourism Conference and the 14th Annual Travel Managers Conference, where delegates get to experience our wonderful tourism options and leave inspired to sell our city to travellers.
There’s also an aviation conference (more flights for our airport maybe), zoo and aquarium conference, legal conference, international education conference, two medical conferences, a franchise conference and an insurance conference.
Every day something new is being discussed at Te Pae. More importantly, the tangible connections they provide allow us to showcase our region’s expertise and support further growth, while conference delegates add vibrancy to our city in the winter months.
