Developing a Major Events Strategy for Christchurch

16 August 2017

ChristchurchNZ* was established in July 2017 to support prosperity, opportunity and a great quality of life in Christchurch and Canterbury. 

We work to optimise the economic and social opportunities from tourism, major events, city promotion, international education and economic development on behalf of the residents of Christchurch and Canterbury.

One of our priorities is an enhanced major events and festivals portfolio that attracts visitors, contributes to building Christchurch’s profile nationally and internationally and leaves a positive legacy for residents. 

We are therefore developing a Major Events Strategy for the city and we are keen to get ideas on what we should be focusing on as we work to enhance the city’s major events portfolio.

We would welcome your comments on the emerging strategy and how we can ensure the best possible outcomes for Christchurch from investing in major events.

All feedback or comments should be directed to communications@christchurchnz.com

Public engagement on the strategy will take place from 16 August to 11 September 2017.

* ChristchurchNZ was created from the merger of Canterbury Development Corporation and International Education, Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism and the Convention Bureau, and Christchurch City Council’s Major Events team.
