Welcome to our Conference

Te Pae Maunga, Te Pae Whenua, Te Pae Tāngata: CATE Conference 2022

The Gathering Place of the Mountain, the Land , the People

This conference will be about gathering to navigate the waters, climb the mountains and see the horizons. As we build connections, collaborate with one another, and integrate our knowledge and skills, we will be enabled to strengthen and support the futures of the people we influence. Our logo shows the inter-connectedness of the mountains, the rivers, the land and the people: they are our lifeforce and our strength.

Our city, Ōtautahi, Christchurch is a city that has re-invented itself, built on the determination and tenacity of our ancestors and present-day citizens. It has been designed, constructed, and regenerated; a new hospitality scene has emerged, new laneways, pathways, street art and retail spaces. Businesses, industries, agricultural and educational opportunities, and health facilities have been created. The people have worked together in times of uncertainty and crises and are ready to tell their stories.

The conference will be held in the new Christchurch Convention Centre, Te Pae, which has just opened, and is in the centre of the city, on the banks of the Ōtākaro, The Avon River. This is a world class convention centre and is an architectural gem. As we gather, we will also be able to appreciate the city of parks, rivers, beaches and hills, a city waiting to be explored again. Our ever resilient and innovative people are ready to welcome you and our Canterbury CATE Conference team is excited to finally host you.
