Kiwicon will, for the fourth year, be held at Rutherford House, in Victoria University of Wellington's Pipitea campus, despite the fact that previously they were somehow labouring under the misapprehension that we were from the New Zealand Institite of Minced Meats, here to discuss the latest developments in sausage basting. Dunno quite how that happened.
The good folks at Victoria Uni also overlooked the fact we had sellout crowds and a bunch of dirty stinking hackers filling up their nice lecture theatres in previous years.
The lecture theatre for the main presentation track is designated RHLT1.
Rutherford House is located on the corner of Bunny St and Lambton Quay. The lecture theatre entrance is on Bunny St. Consult the map below for details.
Below are some helpful images to guide you on your way:
Wellington is located at the southern end of New Zealand's creatively named North Island (or Te Ika-a-Maui).
It is serviced by Wellington airport, located a mere 10km from downtown Wellington and Kiwicon. Wellington central is compact, with the majority of interesting bits within stumbling distance. Taxis and buses are easily located.
International and domestic flights into Wellington are offered by Air New Zealand, Jetstar and Virgin. Transport from the airport to the city is easily accomplished via the wireless-equipped route-91 "Airport Flyer" bus.
Train services into Wellington from the surrounding suburbs are effective, but long distance rail is largely a waste of time and money. Intercity buses and Ferries are available from other areas of the North and South Islands.
Busses and trains inside Wellington can be investigated on Metlink
If you are looking for a place to stay during Kiwicon, there are a number of backpackers and hotels in close vicinity that provide reasonable rates. Remember, anywhere in central Wellington is within walking distance, especially when you've got your Beer Jacket on. The Holiday Inn is directly adjacent to the main venue, if someone else is paying, and you place a premium on being able to stumble out of your bed, and into the con in under two minutes.
