DevNet 2018 is being held in central Christchurch at the YMCA Christchurch.  Break out session rooms are in the YMCA, the Arts Centre and The Gym.  It will take a few minutes travel to move between venues, and some have a “no stilettos” policy – so bring your comfortable walking shoes!

We are encouraging delegates to get out into the city during lunch breaks, with more information available in due course.

Venue locations

We are using four rooms across the programme:

  • Papa Hou (in the YMCA)
  • Recital Room (in the UC Arts Centre)
  • Camerata Room (in the UC Arts Centre)
  • The Gym

You can see the relative position of each of these rooms in the map below.  Note that the walk to The Gym is approximately five minutes due to building works on the north side of Hereford St.Flat map satellite

If you’re looking for somewhere to have lunch, your favourite online mapping tool probably has many of the local eateries marked.  However, we have also put together an interactive map with some suggestions, you can find it here (link).


The conference venue is in Central Christchurch, next to the museum and botanic gardens.  If you don’t want to take a taxi, the Purple line bus ($15 return at June 2018) will take you from the airport to the Hospital, and the venue is a short walk north across the Avon from there.

Car parking

There are a limited number of carparks at the YMCA which delegates are able to use while they are attending the conference, but availability cannot be guaranteed. Access to the carpark is from Cashel St and delegates will need to sign their car in at reception if using the carpark. Please do not park in any carparks marked as being for UC staff.
