Lower NZI is an incredibly flexible space within the Aotea Centre​, offering four different configuration options. Each option creates a contemporary space perfect for hosting cocktails, banquets, classroom or theatre style events. 

With 909m2​ of space, Lower NZI is also ideal for exhibitions and can accommodate up 42 exhibition booths. This space has all technical neccessities required for ensuring the smooth running of an event.

Lower NZI is naturally lit by a large 74m2 skylight and peppered with contemporary artwork and stylish furnishings. Utilising retractable walls, the area can be divided into three individual rooms with a private foyer, or used as one large space. 

Individual rooms range from 180m2 to 204m2 and can accommodate between 120 and 150 guests in a banquet setting or 165-200 theatre style. Combining the two rooms creates a space with the capacity to seat up to 660 guests for dinner or 1000 for a cocktail reception.
