Venues & Events

Rydges Wellington is your landmark hotel in the capital. With some of the top conference venues in Wellington, Rydges Wellington welcomes conferences, conventions, meetings, seminars, trade shows, weddings, receptions, Christmas parties and social events. 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 Wellington is one minute from Wellington Railway Station, two minutes to Lambton Quay Shopping, a short drive to Wellington Airport, and on the doorstep of local attractions including Westpac Stadium, Queens Wharf, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, “The Beehive” New Zealand Parliament, Victoria University of Wellington, Michael Fowler Centre, and Wellington Botanic Gardens.

Our flexible conference venue can host anything from board meetings of 10 executives up to seminars or grand banquets of 230 people. Our function rooms feature natural light, integrated audio visual equipment, generous pre-function space and FREE WI-FI throughout the venue. 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.

Our dedicated and professional event planners assist in organising every detail, from catering menus to decorations, to fit all needs and budgets. We have an intimate knowledge of the local area and are experts in making your event a memorable occasion.
