About us – Wellington Convention Centre

The Wellington Convention Centre (now operating as Positively Wellington Venues) is designed to offer the right solutions – not just when organising an event; but when attending one too.


Regardless of what sort of event you are involved with – our venues and our team are committed to giving you the greatest experience.  In the heart of the city, with all facilities sitting right on the waterfront and with breathtaking views over the harbour, the location of these venues is unbeatable.

The Michael Fowler Centre and the Wellington Town Hall sit adjacent to each other connected by an air-bridge and covered walkway. Both venues open onto the Civic Square – an outdoor urban park borded by the Civic Library and City Art Gallery.

The TSB Bank Arena sits directly on the Wellington waterfront and is a mere four minute walk from the Michael Fowler Centre and Wellington Town Hall. This multi-purpose facility caters for trade-shows, indoor sporting events, large concerts and corporate events.

You will work closely with our event managers, technical specialists and support staff, and together we ensure that your event beats all the others.


Two venues working as one:

The potential of the Wellington Town Hall and the Michael Fowler Centre is further enhanced by its air bridge link between buildings. It allows enhanced capacity for conferences, adding to the mix:

  • a world-class 2,200 seat auditorium
  • a 300 seat theatre
  • several additional conference rooms for a single conference
