2023 Conference Venue

The XIII SCAR Biology Symposium 2023 will be held at Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre

Te Pae Christchurch is the city’s gathering place — an architectural and social landmark designed as a welcoming heart in the centre of the city.

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre is part of an integrated convention centre precinct located right in the heart of Christchurch city, providing a memorable delegate experience.

The precinct connects easily with Cathedral Square, the Avon River Precinct, and all central city retail and hospitality hubs. A range of hotel accommodation is located in close proximity to the centre, and all within easy walking distance for delegates. The wider precinct encompasses a range of retail and hospitality areas, ensuring a first class delegate experience.

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre holds a 5 Star NZGBC Green Star Design rating and Toitu enviromark gold certification. Food waste is processed on-site to reduce waste by 85 per cent and the rest is turned into organic fertiliser. Cool right?
