Te Pae Christchurch gains international events leader

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre is building on the depth of its international expertise with the appointment of experienced Client Services Manager, Lee-Ann Dahl.

Ms Dahl previously worked at the Durban International Convention Centre where she was part of the sales and events team for over 11 years. Ms Dahl project-managed a wide range of large-scale events during her time in Durban, including the 21st World Routes Development Congress. She has also previously held hospitality roles in the United Kingdom.

Ms Dahl said she is looking forward to promoting the Canterbury region to delegates through events held at Te Pae Christchurch.

“Our team want to provide clients with the complete Christchurch experience and ensure people leave with amazing memories of service, food and hospitality. We’re confident we can deliver at the highest level.”

Ms Dahl sees Te Pae Christchurch as a catalyst for growth in the city and believes working closely with the local industry itself is vital.

“I think this will help us portray the Christchurch narrative to our guests and I’m looking forward to creating events that really put the spotlight on Christchurch – it really is a wonderful, innovative city,” said Ms Dahl.

Director of Event Services Karine Legeay-Fisher said Ms Dahl and her team will go the extra mile to satisfy clients and create an authentic local experience – full of the warmth and hospitality that the region is known for.

“Lee-Ann knows what it takes to make guests feel at home and that’s what Te Pae Christchurch is all about. We’re more than just a convention centre – we want each event to be an experience that leaves guests feeling immersed in our local culture.”
