MEETINGS 2022 is the country's only national business trade show, and has returned to the city after a 14-year break.
Organised by Business Events Industry Aotearoa, the two-day show has attracted 650 delegates, including more than a hundred from Australia.
About 200 exhibitors from 18 regions across New Zealand are showcasing their products and services.
Another 100 events are scheduled over the rest of the year at the centre, injecting an estimated $37 million into the local economy.
The public will get their chance to tour through the purpose-built facility during an open day on Sunday, July 17.
