Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand

At the bottom of the world at the water’s edge is a little city with a big heart

Surrounded by nature and buzzing with a creative energy that makes life interesting, Wellington is a compact city with a powerful mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine. Fuel yourself for IIPC each day with strong coffee made by Wellington’s many excellent baristas, and snatch some moments away from the conference to wander through hidden laneways and discover New Zealand’s stories in interactive museums. Be inspired in theatres and galleries, and fill your bags with new wares and tasty treats from boutiques and markets.

Keep the networking going after each day’s events and discover why Vogue dubbed Wellington “a locavore’s dream” in the city’s restaurants, cocktail lounges and craft beer bars. Be sure to also take a trip to our neighbouring wine region Wairarapa, and explore the city’s outdoor playground by bike, foot, boat or train.
