WellingtonNZ, a Council Controlled Organisation, is 80 per cent owned by Wellington City Council and 20 per cent by Greater Wellington Regional Council.
The WellingtonNZ teams work across Regional Development, Programmes & Attraction, Events & Experiences, Marketing & Communications, Stakeholder & Key Partner Engagement and Business Services. Their programmes, projects and initiatives are designed to act as catalysts, to help Wellington to unlock more of its economic potential.
In 2018, WREDA redefined its purpose as being to make the Wellington region wildly famous.
As an economic development agency that was formed from the amalgamation of several prior Council Controlled Organisation (CCO’s) and council functions, WellingtonNZ have a broad range of activities within their mandate.
