Introduction

The Cloud is a unique, modern structure that has become a landmark on Queens Wharf, next to Shed 10, along Auckland’s waterfront.

The Cloud reflects Aotearoa - Land of the Long White Cloud.

Built as a temporary structure to accommodate an inner-city fan zone during Rugby World Cup 2011, it has since won a place in the hearts of Aucklanders and visitors alike.

The Cloud is a multi-purpose veune ideal for exhibitions, cocktail functions, meetings, dinners, weddings and large-scale events.

At almost 180m long, the pillar-less exhibition floor can accommodate 107 exhibition stands, 1,500 people for a seated dinner, 2,000 guests for cocktails and works exceptionally well for large-scale events.

The Mezzanine rooms at the northern end of The Cloud offer unparalleled views of the Waitematā Harbour.
