host region


In 2020, TRENZ will be hosted in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Christchurch is the city of exploration, a refreshing urban centre full of new secrets to discover. If you haven’t been here in a while, you’re in for a surprise. The city has been through some massive changes in the past few years, and the time has come to explore it all.

Prepare for new architecture and immense street art, cocktail bars and bustling restaurants, laneways and green public spaces. Get up the Port Hills for outdoor adventures, from downhill biking to ziplines. Hit the coast for surfing, kayaking and beach vibes.

Ōtautahi Christchurch is the basecamp for southern exploration, the likes of Akaroa, Kaikōura, Hanmer Springs, and the epic Southern Alps, all within reach of Aotearoa’s newest city.
