Aotea Centre’s exciting transformation is the first major refurbishment in 28 years, positioning this prime venue as a versatile option for a wide variety of events of any scale. Located in the heart of Auckland city, Aotea Centre is a vibrant home for performing arts in the city as well as an ideal venue for conferences, tradeshows, meetings, gala dinners, cocktail functions and more.
While renovation is still underway in a few areas, guests will be impressed with fresh lighting, modern floor and wall treatments and new bars and exhibition spaces on all floors. Foyers have been opened up to showcase the art and a new wayfinding system complements the updated, modern architecture and enhanced accessibility. This includes wayfinding in te reo Māori and Braille, new digital screens on all levels to identify current events, audio in the lifts, contrasting materials at the top and bottom of stairs, reconfigured ramps, and accessible counters at all bars and public spaces.
Aotea Centre is the flagship among ten iconic venues for Auckland Conventions & Events. Housing New Zealand’s largest modern tiered auditorium, it can seat more than 2,000 people over three levels. However, with expansive foyers and a range of flexible meeting spaces with multiple breakout rooms, the Centre can host small intimate gatherings as well as large, world class conferences. The Centre’s position in the middle of the city centre means shopping, dining, accommodation and entertainment options are all within easy walking distance, as are public transport options.
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.
