Wellington is New Zealand’s events and creative capital. From film premieres to major sports events to arts and culture festivals, there’s always something to do in the city. Major events such as the World of WearableArt Awards Show ensure that the city is a lively and enjoyable place to live.
Wellington faces increasing competition from other Australasian cities for the right to host major events. To maintain our economic and cultural edge, we will need to invest. The Council is proposing to increase the funding available to attract and support major events, ensuring that the city is able to bring in new attractions and retain those it currently has.
Our major events fund targets a 1:20 economic return on the investment that is made.
