Kiwicon 7 Girl Geek Dinner: The Venue

Wow! We’ve already sold 38 tickets in less than a week! Time for a sneak peek at the venue for the evening:

This event is being run in the Exhange Atrium, a shared space that joins Allen and Blair Streets, right in the heart of Wellington’s Courtenay quarter.It’s a very flexible space which can easily accommodate us for dinner, while still retaining cozyness and character.We have exclusive access to the Atrium for the entire evening thanks to the adjoining Monsoon Poon restaurant, who are catering us for the evening.

The Atrium is licensed so there will be a limited selection of alcoholic and and non alcoholic beverages available at a cash bar inside the venue (no eftpos facilities in the atrium sorry, so please bring cash with you), with the full bar just next door for anything on their drinks list. There’s also a coffee machine at the full bar.

Guests who are under the legal drinking age are still very welcome to attend, you just can’t drink alcohol.

We do encourage guests to stay after the event’s main proceedings are over and take full advantage of having the space to yourselves for the night.

Access is via the Allen Street entrance to the Atrium, to the right of Household Linens (17A Allen St). There’s a few steps up into the Atrium through this entrance, or there’s ramp access via an alternate entrance also on Allen Street. These will be locked externally for the night before the event begins for venue security.

Bathrooms are available through in the main restaurant, which are wheelchair accessible.

It’s close to Wellington’s bus routes and taxi stands. There is on street parking on nearby streets, which is metered until 8pm on Friday nights.

We’ve aimed to pick a flexible venue suitable for dining and presentations, that’s situated close to the Friday Kiwicon events. How did we do?

Kiwicon 7 Wellington Girl Geek Dinner (Nov)

Drumroll please… We’re pleased to announce the second annual Kiwicon Girl Geek Dinner on the 8th of November!

Set on the Friday night before the conference at Monsoon Poon, we’re hoping this will give everyone a chance to meet up before the ‘con kicks off the next day.

The event is not restricted to just Kiwicon attendees, so if you’ve missed out on a Kiwicon ticket, or are just curious, we’d love you to come along and get to know each other over dinner.

Doors will be open from 6pm. We’ll be posting a menu soon.

Tickets are priced at $20, with a limited number of student tickets available at $5 each. Tickets are available for purchase thanks to the awesome team at Lil Regie, but you’ll have to be in quick!

We’d like to thank Kiwicon for their generous funding and support to make this event happen again, after a sell-out event last year we’re hoping this year’s will be even bigger and better!

As always tickets are for woman, however Men are also welcome as a guest of a woman attending.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
