Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre
Sitting at the heart of Wellington’s cultural precinct, Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre is the nation’s new meeting place. It's a place of welcoming, learning, and sharing.
Inspired by Wellington’s dramatic landscape and environment, Tākina means to “invoke,” reflecting Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) as a place people come together to talk and think. With two levels of purpose-built event space designed for the ultimate experience, the ground floor will also host a premium café and a rotating calendar of world-class exhibitions.
Through local, sustainable and delicious cuisine that showcases the region, cutting-edge contemporary design and panoramic views over the city and Wellington Harbour, Tākina offers the ultimate Wellington experience.
Situated across the road from National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in the heart of the vibrant capital, Tākina is surrounded by the city’s best accommodation and eateries, and just a 15-minute drive from the airport.
An ambitious city, Wellington has long been a leader in climate change and is already the lowest carbon city per capita in Australasia. In 2019 Wellington City Council adopted Te Atakura – First to Zero, a blueprint to make Wellington a net zero-carbon city by 2050.
Wellington was named the most livable city for two years in a row and is ranked first globally for environmental security. As a compact city, it has high use of public transport and relatively low car ownership.
Te Whanganui-a-Tara is one of the very few cities in the world experiencing an increase in biodiversity, credited to the creation of urban sanctuary Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne. As the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary, Zealandia is pursuing a 500-year vision to regenerate the 225ha valley that the fence protects. Its work has motivated local communities across the city to all contribute toward a greener capital where nature can thrive.
Sustainability and Tākina
Environmental sustainability and resilience are at the heart of Wellington's new convention and exhibition centre, Tākina.
With a focus on reducing energy and water, sustainable materials use, and renewable energy capability, Tākina is a landmark for Wellington’s sustainable future and has been awarded a 5-Star Green Star certification representing New Zealand excellence for environmental sustainability.
Designed to operate efficiently at all levels of use, Tākina will have a 66 percent reduction in operational carbon emissions, when benchmarked against a comparable new build. Located in the heart of Wellington means more opportunities for active, eco-friendly transportation.
