Emergency management

This page has been created to inform you about our venues after an emergency has occurred.

Updated Thursday 01 June 2017

All of our venues are currently operational and things are business as usual. We will keep you informed in the case of an emergency on what the correct procedures are to manage your safety in our venues.

What you need to know about holding an event in Wellington with its earthquake prone tendencies:

New Zealand, like many parts of the world, has a background of seismic risk that is well understood. Wellington came through the November 2016 earthquake very well, and there was little disruption. Wellington has undertaken a rigorous programme of building inspection, identified and managed any issues arising.

Business event planners and promoters can have full confidence in Wellington's capacity to deliver high-quality business event experiences, as ever. Wellington's hotels and civic venues are all open for business, and safe to occupy. Public safety is our number one priority, and our venue teams are trained to manage event attendees and delegates in response to all kinds of emergencies.

As ever, we look forward to welcoming hirers and delegates from around New Zealand and the world in Wellington.
