Where is the Wellington Convention Centre

  • The Wellington Convention Centre is actually a collection of buildings. For the purposes of LCA2010, it will be the Michael Fowler Centre(MFC) and the Wellington Town Hall. There are room maps in each name badge booklet. They are:
    • Michael Fowler Centre
      • Auditorium - where the keynotes are each morning
      • Renouf rooms 1&2 are on the 2nd floor at the top of the stairs (same level as entrance to auditorium)
    • Frank Taplin room is at the back of the Auditorium. This is the "green room" for the orchestra/performers when there's a concert at the auditorium
    • Wellington Town Hall
      • Ilott Room is on the ground floor. Turn left after you enter the townhall building
      • Town Hall is where the cafe is for morning and afternoon teas, as well sells food for lunch

Wifi? Internet?

What's available

  • Conference network is available around the two venues
  • Cafenet is a paid wifi service. All LCA2010 delegates will have a cafenet coupon code in their bag which gives you free wifi for the week. You need to sign up to the cafenet service with the code to activate the free service. Without this code, you will need to buy (pay money) to use cafenet.
  • vistagate is available to those staying at ustay. It is $10 for the week. This can be purchased from ustay reception. You will need a network cable to connect to vistagate from your room. Connecting to vistagate via wireless is possible from the common room on level 1.
  • Various internet services at hotels. These are generally expensive. Cafenet is available around wellington CBD. SO there is a possibility you may use your cafenet account from your room.
