The Convention Bureau, in conjunction with the Tourism New Zealand Conference Assistance Programme, can help bring your large international conference to Christchurch.
Why choose the Convention Bureau?
The Conference Bureau has been totally incredible. From the very first draft of an amazing bid document to helping us show conference scouts around, their support has exceeded anything I could have asked for. As someone who is brand new at holding a conference, they made things so very much easier than it otherwise would have been. Thank you.Steven Sykes, Chair of linux.conf.au 2019
I am extremely grateful for all the support I have received when bidding for ICCE 2017. All the steps have been so easy, and the amount of advice I received is amazing! The bid and the presentation material I received impressed the Executive Committee of APSCE – they all said they wished the conference could happen much sooner!Tanja Mitrovic, International Conference on Computers in Education
