Christchurch convention centre build starts soon - opening planned for 2020

Construction of Christchurch, New Zealand's convention and exhibition centre, set to be ready for business in 2020, starts soon. 
Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) chief executive Sue Sullivan said there is growing international demand for this style of premium facility.
“With lead times for major conferences between three to eight years and a long pipeline for future business, we can now confidently go out and book Christchurch for 2020 and beyond.
 
“We have seen strong interest in Christchurch at recent trade events in Auckland and Sydney. Conference organisers are telling us they want stand-out design and flexible space in an attractive, walkable city centre with quality accommodation and excellent international and domestic air connectivity,” said Sullivan.

With the larger New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) in Auckland being followed by Christchurch, New Zealand is set to capture a bigger slice of the international multi-day convention market.
