Conference venue

The Dunedin Centre is perfectly positioned in the heart of the city. With its grand baroque style, and its perfect blend of old-world style and modern convenience it makes an impressive setting for all events. 
It is steps away from accommodation, restaurants, cafés, bars, shopping, and major attractions like the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
