Podium finish for three Wellington venues

Three iconic Wellington venues have been awarded for their work in making their spaces accessible for guests.

The Michael Fowler Centre, TSB Bank Arena and Auditorium (Shed 6) worked with Be. Accessible to make sure all visitors, parents and children can access, use and depart the venues safely.

Warrick Dent, General Manager Events and Experience at WREDA is pleased to see three Venues Wellington locations receive accolades, making events more enjoyable for everyone.

“Venues Wellington hosts a wide range of events – from sport and music concerts, to trade shows and the impressive World Of WearableArt,” says Warrick.

“It makes sense that a region like Wellington, with such a vibrant and diverse arts and culture scene, has accessible locations to showcase our events. We want as many people as possible to enjoy them.”

The Michael Fowler Centre was upgraded to a Silver Be. Welcome award in June, while TSB Bank Arena and Auditorium (Shed 6) were upgraded to a Gold Be. Welcome award.

The Be. Welcome awards commend the venues on arriving, getting into and out of the venues safely, moving around inside and clear information for guests.
