We're excited to announce a change of venue from the Amora Hotel to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa
We're excited to announce a change in venue! DrupalSouth will now be hosted at Te Papa - New Zealands national museum 3 mins walk away from the old venue, the Amora Hotel.
Te Papa is New Zealand’s iconic and innovative national museum located in the heart of Wellington’s beautiful waterfront. As well as being a six level museum that showcases New Zealand’s national art and treasures, it is also a unique conference and function venue that combines serious business with outstanding hospitality.
How to get there
Te Papa is just across the road from the Amora Hotel, DrupalSouth's offical accomodation. In Just 3 minutes walk you'll arrive at our new venue on the beautiful Wellington waterfront.
Why the change?
Unfortunately, the Amora Hotel was no longer able to accomadate us. The conference rooms at the Amora, the ballroom and the chambers, were affected by an earthquake in July 2013 that are still yet to undergo repairs. As these plans are out of the control of the Amora Hotel, we had no choice but to move the conference elsewhere. Fortunate for us, we landed at Te Papa - one of New Zealand's finest conference facilities.
If you have accomodation at the Amora, don't worry. The quake damage at the Amora affects the conference facilities only which are built on top of a carpark - a completely different physical building. The Amora hotel itself is completely fine and safe.
