Opened in 1990, Aotea Centre was designed around specially commissioned works by some of New Zealand's most famous contemporary artists. This emphasis on design, together with large expanses of space bathed in natural day light, make it the ideal location for both business and pleasure.

The building boasts the latest cutting edge technology throughout. All spaces have both wired and wireless connections and rooms can be easily data-linked making the venue ideal for large conventions requiring multiple rooms.

The Aotea Centre houses New Zealand’s largest modern tiered auditorium, seating more than 2,000 people over three levels.

Whether you are holding a conference, seminar, exhibition, award ceremony, product launch, cocktail party or gala dinner, the Aotea Centre has a space to suit.

"It was one of the best organised events I've ever been part of and the crew at the Aotea Centre were incredible. They had everything perfectly organised and were total pros. It really was a fabulous event and everyone left energised and impressed by the venue."
