Who we are

Making the Wellington region wildly famous

WellingtonNZ is the Wellington region’s economic development, events, and promotions agency.

Our ambition is to make the Wellington region wildly famous as a place to visit, live, study, work, do business and invest. Our vision is that the Wellington region is thriving with more people participating in the benefits.

Our priority areas are developing jobs and skills, placemaking, and collaboration and engagement. We do this by supporting businesses to build capability, attracting, hosting and investing in events, running civic venues, marketing and storytelling, and destination development.

WellingtonNZ is also the owner of Creative HQ, an innovation agency that supports business founders, start-ups and corporates via incubation, acceleration and innovation programmes.

WellingtonNZ receives funding from Wellington City Council, the Greater Wellington Regional Council, Central Government and a range of private sector partners. 

Each year our work contributes to tens of millions of dollars of economic benefit for the region.
