Wellington Expat Events

Embark on a New Life in Wellington

Marketed as the "coolest little capital in the world", Wellington's thriving tourist industry means leisure activities, nightlife and international cuisines are all available for expats to enjoy. A number of festivals are on offer, including the New Zealand International Arts Festival, Wellington Jazz Festival, and Cuba Street Festival. Traditionally home to a number of government organizations and major corporations, the economy in Wellington has shifted as a number of these companies have moved to Auckland. The main industries today are arts and culture, film, and IT, with tourism as the major contributor with around 3.5 million visitors a year.

Take the opportunity to network or simply socialize and have fun in an easy-going, safe environment. We also encourage you to check out our InterNations Groups and find fellow expats to share your interests with; dining out, sports and adventures are examples of the hobbies and interests on offer and you can always create your own group if your hobby's not yet found in the list.
