The Carter Holt Harvey New Zealand Pavilion Built in the Heart of The America’s Cup Village

Industry New Zealand today announced that its innovation pavilion in the America’s Cup Village in Auckland’s Viaduct Basin will put New Zealand’s innovation leaders on display for the world to see.

Industry New Zealand in partnership with the major sponsor Carter Holt Harvey, has constructed the New Zealand Pavilion.

The Carter Holt Harvey New Zealand Pavilion will be a celebration of New Zealand’s innovation leaders past, present and future, bringing to the fore the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that drives success in New Zealand.

The Pavilion is a unique piece of architecture which successfully encapsulates the New Zealand spirit of innovation both in its Silver Fern inspired design as well as the multi-media Innovation Vignettes and Leadership stories.

Neil Mackay, Chief Executive of Industry New Zealand, says the New Zealand Pavilion is an initiative to showcase and highlight the many achievements New Zealanders have made as successful entrepreneurs and innovators locally and globally.
