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?
