The Cloud is a unique, modern structure that has quickly become a landmark along Auckland’s waterfront. Designed by Jasmax, The Cloud reflects Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud. It was erected as a temporary structure to accommodate an inner-city fan zone during Rugby World Cup 2011, and has since won a place in the hearts of Aucklanders and visitors alike.

At almost 180m long, the pillar-less exhibition floor can accommodate 120 3x3m booths, 900 people for a seated dinner, 4500 guests for cocktails and works exceptionally well for large scale events.

The Mezzanine room at the northern end of The Cloud is a beautiful room for 200 guests for a meal with unparalleled view of the sea.  It is the perfect location for cocktail parties, meetings, receptions, dinners and weddings.
