Venue and accommodation


At the heart of Wellington’s commercial and retail districts the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor is the capital’s leading Qualmark rated 4.5 star hotel.  The Exhibition Area will be located on the same floor as all the conference rooms, ensuring excellent exposure for exhibitors.  All morning and afternoon tea breaks and lunches will be served from the Exhibition Area.

James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor is committed to environmental and social sustainability. They are currently working towards gaining recognition with both Green Globe and Qualmark this year.  The main aims of these programmes are:

  • To achieve sound environmental practices across their entire operation
  • To minimise the amount of waste generated by re-using materials and recycling
  • To ensure all new products or materials used around the hotel are natural based wherever possible.
  • To give preference to goods and services produced locally and with minimal environmental impact



There are many accommodation options available in central Wellington to suit all price ranges.
