Meet the team at IMEX America 10-12 October 2017

Do you hold events of up to 4,000 delegates? Are looking to experience a new International Convention Centre in a unique country?

With new flight paths, new infrastructure and increased accessibility bringing your next conference to Auckland, New Zealand is easier than ever.

Our Director of Sales - Prue Rogers will be visiting the United States for IMEX America and would love to discuss:

  • any of your event requirements within our new world class venue,
  • assist with connecting you to our partners Tourism New Zealand to understand more about the Conference Assistance Programme for international events,
  • how we can support you collaboratively with Auckland Convention Bureau to support your financial feasibility and bids.

Hosted buyers can find us by our company profile (New Zealand International Convention Centre) and request a time with Prue across the 10th -12th October. If you are intending on registering for IMEX America but don’t have an appointment stream feel free to email us directly to make a time or come and talk to the team in the 100% Pure New Zealand Stand, in D2633, we would be delighted to talk with you.

If you aren’t attending IMEX America but would like to arrange a time to chat outside of these dates, our team would be glad to come and meet with you.

Why Auckland?

Auckland’s combination of city style and a natural playground makes it easy to create an inspiring itinerary. Whether you want to impress your delegates with a five-star dinner, find teambuilding ideas, or offer adventure activities for incentive travellers, the choices are endless.

An award-winning destination

Auckland was crowned Australasia's Leading Meetings & Conference Destination 2017 at the World Travel Awards.

A thriving business and innovation hub

With a population of 1.5 million and growing, Auckland is the financial and economic powerhouse of New Zealand, contributing over 35 per cent of national gross domestic product. We’re also the nation’s tech hub, with more than 20,000 innovation-based companies.

It’s easy to get to

We’re by far the most connected city in New Zealand. With 30 international airlines flying direct to Auckland from 43 destinations around the world, and only one direct flight away from major cities in Australia, Asia and west coast US, we’re closer than you think.

It’s easy to get around

Our transport services can help you manage both small and large groups. Choose from a huge range, from public buses, trains and ferries to coaches, hire cars, limousines and even motorhomes if your delegates want to explore more of New Zealand.

Our dining scene is top-notch

Fresh, diverse, globally-inspired and gourmet are just a few of the words to describe our dining scene. Being home to a melting pot of cultures, you’ll find a huge range of traditional and modern cuisine throughout our dining precincts across the city. For a special day out, take a vineyard tour in one of Auckland’s three wine regions.

Our culture is unique

We’re home to more than 200 cultural groups – in fact we’re the fourth most diverse city in the world – and that’s part of what makes us an exciting, vibrant city. Discover our unique Māori heritage, explore award-winning galleries and museums, or join in the celebrations at one of our many cultural events.

Superb group activities

Auckland’s natural landscapes make for memorable group experiences – you can go from golden island beaches to rugged black-sand beaches, volcanoes, waterfalls and pristine forest all in a single day. From walking trails and mountain biking, to jet boating and dolphin watching, we have countless professionally-run activities to choose from.

Auckland's friendly

Don’t just take our word for it - Condé Nast Traveler magazine rated Auckland one of the world’s top 10 friendliest cities in their Reader Choice Awards in 2015. New Zealanders are known for being friendly and welcoming, and the traditional Māori spirit of manaakitanga (hospitality and generosity) is just as significant to us today.

Information about the NZICC

Due to open in 2020 the NZICC is a flexible and innovative new centre in the heart of Auckland’s central business district. It’s a building that has been designed collaboratively by architects, event industry experts and our future clients, creating what we believe will be a refreshingly simple, dynamic and modern experience.

The most unique aspect of the NZICC, apart from being in the heart of a humming city in a vibrant country, is the level of configurability you will experience across our theatre, halls and meeting spaces - easily accommodating events from 2 people to 4,000. The flexibility of our new Centre is paired with a team focussed on making your event exceed your expectations.
