Rydges Wellington Conferencing – it’s just the way we are.

So, why Rydges Wellington? We understand it takes more than four walls to make a great venue, so there are a few other things we’d like to bring to the table:

  • We know exactly how stressful managing an event can be. The last thing you need to worry about is the venue, so leave it all to us. Each event has a dedicated coordinator to manage the finer details – which means you can sit back, relax, and know it’s all under control. 
  • With a prime location in the heart of Wellington’s CBD, Rydges is your landmark hotel in the capital. One minute from the Railway Station, two minutes to Lambton Quay, a short drive to Wellington Airport... you get the idea.
  • The dedicated people here at Rydges understand the saying that “there’s no ‘I’ in team”. With each event you don’t just have a coordinator; everyone from the General Manager to the Housekeeping team are on-hand to give you their full support.
  • Food, glorious food. It’s what everyone remembers, and it’s what we do well. At Rydges we’ve stepped it up a notch – our catering is a kaleidoscopic, sensory delight designed to deliver your attendees gently through the day. From the fresh green salads to the rather sinful desserts... frankly, we can think of worse ways to spend the day.

We’re confident Rydges Wellington would be a great fit for your event, so please be sure to get in touch to discuss your requirements further by placing an enquiry using the online form or by emailing the events team on
