"Because things are better LIVE"

We are responsible for the management of six versatile and exceptional venues located in the heart of Wellington's culture and entertainment precinct. From an intimate board meeting to a large-scale rock concert, we can make it happen in the 'coolest little capital in the world'.

Formerly the Wellington Convention Centre, Positively Wellington Venues (PWV) manages the Wellington Town Hall, Michael Fowler Centre, TSB Bank Arena and its 'side-kick' Shed 6, St James Theatre and the Opera House.

PWV is also proud to manage the Academy Galleries - let your event showcase itself amongst a backdrop of impressive art by leading New Zealand and international artists at the Academy Galleries.

Our tagline is 'because things are better LIVE' because we're all about delivering outstanding business events alongside live performances and concerts. With such a range of event options coupled with performance offerings we are proud to be able to offer clients something special.

PWV has a driven leadership team plus a group of top professionals; from event managers, key partners, technical specialists to support staff - together we ensure that your event is a success from concept to completion.

Fine art. Fine venue.
