About the Location

Haere-roa emobodies ideas of manaakitanga (hospitality) and whakapapa (geneology, descent from people and land) which are central mauri (values), and Te Aranga (Māori design principles).

We’re renting out the entire space for our conference - which includes an outdoor amphitheatre overlooking the Avon River, the iconic, state-of-the-art Ngaio Marsh Theatre and more! (it’s very cool, go check it out.)

The event is being coordinated by a collaboration of people from the local ISIG and Women in Tech groups. These are two information security and technology groups that meet regularly in Christchurch
