The construction of New Zealand’s International Convention Centre (NZICC) is progressing well following the turning of the first sod by New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key recently, with doors opening in 2020.
The NZD$471 million centre will be a global hub of innovation and knowledge exchange, set at the very heart of beautiful Auckland, New Zealand’s biggest city. It boasts large flexible functional spaces for a wide range of events, including intimate meeting spaces on all levels, a convention capacity for 3,150 and can cater for one-off events for up to 4,000 people.
Construction is well under way, with all but two of the 16 buildings on site having been demolished already.
Presenting at the Worldwide Exhibition for Incentive Travel, Meetings and Events Expo (IMEX) in Frankfurt today, Simon Jamieson – General Manager of the New Zealand International Convention Centre says the Centre is utilising not only revolutionary new smart technology, but the brightest and best New Zealand has to offer.
says Mr Jamieson.
Through his presentation at IMEX, Mr Jamieson took media through a special interactive experience of the New Zealand International Convention Centre, all developed and designed by Kiwi company Buildmedia.
Gareth Ross, Managing Director of Buildmedia says the NZICC allowed Buildmedia creative freedom to challenge and push what was technologically possible.
