The Wellington Convention Centre consists of two classic buildings located adjacent to each other in Wellington’s central business district. The buildings are connected via a pedestrian bridge or are simply a few metres walk between the two buildings. The Wellington Town Hall is a beautifully restored historical building (1904), and the Michael Fowler Centre is of modern architectural design (1983).
The Michael Fowler Centre offers excellent tiered theatre seating for up to 1,000 when only the lower level is used, and has a maximum capacity of 2,500 with the use of the promenades.
There are 19 versatile venues within these two buildings, which are host to a large number of events each year ranging from conferences to concerts, banquets to exhibitions, weddings to conventions. It has practical and comfortable areas for posters, banners, exhibitions, catering and social networking.
The Wellington Convention Centre is located right in the midst of the bustling cafe culture, shopping, theatres, galleries, hotels and Wellington’s central business district. Walking to downtown Wellington is quick, easy and safe.
