3.1 City promotions and business support

Ngā whakatairanga tāone me ngā āwhina pakihi

By supporting city promotions, events and attractions, we underscore Wellington’s reputation as a great place to live and visit.

What we do

The economic prosperity of the city is closely linked to residents’ quality of life. Our activities contribute to the city’s economic wellbeing and take a lead in shaping Wellington’s future prosperity.

Our activities in this area complement the work of Grow Wellington. Working alongside Grow Wellington and other institutions in the region means we can make the most effective use of our limited resources towards shared goals.
