Tākina Convention and Exhibition Centre

50 Cable Street, Te Aro, Wellington

It’s a new home for world-class exhibitions that draw people from afar and conferences that change how the whole world thinks. The Convention Centre sits across two levels and is purpose-built for international and local conferences, with capacity for up to 1,600 delegates.

Tākina’s unique sculptural form draws inspiration from a wide range of sources including the venue’s maritime location, Māori mythology, and Wellington’s dramatic and sometimes wild weather patterns and landforms.


Tākina is directly across the road from 2 large public car parks at Te Papa and on Wakefield Street. Have a look at Parkopedia for other options close by.
