Says CEO of Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism, Christine Prince, there is presently more than $400 million in infrastructure developments at the present time, sure to assist in cementing the city’s position as a world-class destination favoured by business and leisure tourists. “Plans are now underway for expansion of our purpose-built convention centre to triple its size in the heart of the city and create even more reasons to meet here,” she said recently. “Christchurch International Airport has [also] begun a major redevelopment program, the city council has announced bold moves to enhance the inner city, extensions to our heritage tramway are underway, and two new hotels are near completion in the city centre. There’s so much more to look forward to in Christchurch and we look forward to welcoming you here soon.” In line with activity, Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism has strengthened its team with some key announcements.
