Help For Conferences


CHRISTCHURCH CITY COUNCIL


To: Chief Reporter / Council Reporter
From: David Gee - Journalist
Media statement 16 November 1999


A fund could to be established by the Christchurch City Council to help attract conferences to the city.

The council’s strategy and resources committee yesterday recommended to the council that it establish a conference and event bridging loan fund.
A six-figure sum has already been used to secure a conference of the world Physiological Society in the city in August 2001.

The council’s business projects director, Ian Hay, said the council had been approached on a regular basis to support to conferences and similar gatherings. In the past, funds had not been available for the functions.

“Many local committees organising conferences require initial financial support until the time that registrations are received,” he said.

Mr Hay said the fund would be used to “assist with not only the bidding for major conferences and events but also to support organising committees.”
The Physiology Society conference will attract more than 4000 registrations.
