Venue and accommodation

The residentials for the Feb-June programme are being held at Copthorne Hotel Wellington on Oriental Bay on 10-11 March and 16-17 June.

Accommodation is included in the programme price. Even if you live in Wellington, we encourage you to stay overnight and benefit from the opportunity to get to know the other participants better (not to mention avoid any traffic woes!).

A 4-star hotel, located on Wellington's premier Oriental Parade, Copthorne Hotel Wellington Oriental Bay overlooks the stunning Wellington Harbour. Nearby is Te Papa Museum, Freyberg Pool and Fitness Centre, the beautiful Oriental Bay golden sand beach, and the city's shopping and entertainment centre in Courtney Place with many of the city's finest restaurants and bars.

Participants need to organise and pay for their own travel to/from Wellington and the venue.

Please note that the venue and accommodation will be reviewed prior to the July-November programme and might change.

“I was not only able to apply what I had learnt through the programme at work very successfully, but found real value in the networking opportunities with leaders from other sports in the region. As we often face the same challenges, having other sports leaders to share experiences, knowledge and ideas has already had a hugely positive impact in my organisation, and in particular during the challenges we faced under Covid-19 restrictions.”
