Auckland Conventions Venues & Events manages nine iconic venues and offers over 50 dynamic spaces. At the core of their offering is one centralised, experienced team that ensures every event is seamlessly delivered. From an opening ceremony to a sumptuous black tie dinner, whatever the event, the team know how to create a memorable occasion. The Auckland Conventions portfolio includes:
ANZ Viaduct Events Centre
A premium venue located on Auckland’s vibrant waterfront with spectacular harbour views. ANZ Viaduct Events Centre is home to the largest banquet space in Auckland – the Waiheke Room – which can comfortably seat up to 1200 people. This vast, commanding space boasts 12 metre high ceilings surrounded by glass walls which take advantage of the venue’s stunning location. There are seven additional spaces over two levels that are perfect for break-out rooms or smaller conferences and functions.
Auckland Art Gallery
Auckland Art Gallery is a celebrated mix of modern and heritage architecture. In 2013, Auckland Art Gallery won the prestigious title of ‘World Building of the Year’ at the World Architecture Festival. The venue offers an inspired setting for cocktail functions and gala dinners.
In addition to the 19 meeting space configurations, the venue is also home to the ASB Theatre, New Zealand’s largest tiered auditorium seating more than 2000 people. Combined with the venue’s large expanse of exhibition space and multiple options for break-out rooms, Aotea Centre is the perfect choice for multi-day conventions.
Auckland Town Hall
Built in1911, Auckland Town Hall is one of New Zealand’s most important heritage buildings and is a stunning backdrop for functions and events. Attractive stained-glass windows, ornate plasterwork and spectacular chandeliers combine to make this a beautiful venue.
Built in 1929, The Civic is one of the few remaining atmospheric theatres in the world and is the perfect venue to create truly magical events. Decorated lavishly, the room includes dramatic pillars, spires and minarets. An intimate dinner or cocktail function hosted on the stage of The Civic theatre is a memorable way to utilise this unique space.
But wait, there’s more
As well as the inner-CBD offerings, Auckland Conventions also manages Mt Smart Stadium, QBE Stadium Function Centre, Bruce Mason Centre, and Auckland Zoo. Each of these venues offers a unique setting for virtually any type of event.
Recently Auckland Conventions partnered with EPICURE to deliver catering services to a selection of venues in the portfolio. “EPICURE’s considerable experience across multiple venues ensures they are well placed to manage the Auckland Conventions portfolio,” Auckland Conventions director, Mohamed Mansour, says. “In the short time that they have been working with us we have already received some outstanding feedback from our clients about EPICURE’s food and service.”
Business development manager, Josephine Godfrey will be active in the Australian market going forward, meeting with event organisers to help them discover how the range of venues can fit their meeting and event requirements in Auckland.
