Te Pae Convention Centre is a key piece of the Christchurch Rebuild and helps establish a strong cultural narrative throughout the central city.

The Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre Precinct is one of seventeen anchor projects initiated as a part of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan—a 100-day collaboration process where architects and urban planners devised a recovery program for the central business district affected by a 2011 earthquake. Located in the heart of Christchurch, the new building is capable of hosting up to 2,000 delegates for a variety of national and international events and includes a 1,400-delegate auditorium, a 3,600-square-metre exhibition hall and 1,600-square-metres of meeting rooms overlooking the nearby Victoria Square.
