Construction of the Christchurch convention centre can be viewed by a live webcam
Construction work is now underway on the Christchurch Centre and a live webcam is allowing everyone to watch the progress being made. The NZ$475 million convention and exhibition centre is scheduled to be completed in early 2020, with the first conferences held later that year.
“It’s a stunning venue in the centre of New Zealand’s newest city, and at the centre of the South Island,” said general manager Rob McIntyre. “Now we can watch it come to life.”
Spanning two blocks of prime land in the central city, the main entrance opens out to Christchurch’s picturesque Ōtākaro Avon River. The Centre will host up to 2000 people, and the tiered 1400-delegate auditorium can be split to host two 700-delegate events simultaneously. A 3600sqm exhibition hall, and 1600sqm of meeting rooms overlooking Victoria Square will allow seamless flow and plenty of flexible space.
