At an impressive 32,500m2, the NZICC will be the largest and most versatile conference, exhibition and entertainment space in New Zealand.
The designers of the NZICC have focused on creating a highly accessible, inviting and dynamic building for New Zealand to welcome the world.
Representative of the confidence and optimism of a city that is recognised as one of the best places in the world to live, the NZICC will be woven into the city’s fabric, contributing to a coherent and considered plan for a beautiful, navigable and safe inner city.
The NZICC will play a role in a living, breathing precinct that Aucklanders will use and enjoy, while creating an authentic experience for international visitors. The active edges of the centre such as the plaza entry and laneway allow for visitors and locals to flow in and around the centre, allowing for an impressive arrival and integration into our wonderful city.
The NZICC will have two large welcoming galleries. Both spaces will be inviting and create an impressive sense of arrival.
The spaces connect all the levels of the NZICC allowing for fast transitions, are configurable for a range of events, and create ideal spaces for delegates to connect with each other with natural light and open spaces.
At any one time the NZICC will have 33 meeting and breakout spaces across the four levels. Explore our floorplans here to see how we can accommodate your event.
With a total area of 8,100m2 of divisible and multipurpose exhibition space the NZICC will be home to the largest internal room in Auckland offering welcoming spaces for an authentic and memorable experience.
The exhibition hall allowing 400 3m x 3m exhibition booths, maximised by a central 9m high ceiling is suitable for larger trade events. The design allows for direct truck access off Hobson Street for efficient set up and pack down.
A key feature of the hall is the ability to reconfigure the larger space into three separate column-free halls, with additional meeting and breakout spaces all on the same level.
From its position on the top floor, Level 5 will offer magnificent sea vistas from the pre function spaces, with wonderful views across Auckland City.
The theatre, on level 5 can be used in full, with permanent staging for 2,850 people, or easily converted to host two concurrent plenary sessions for 1,200. Retractable seating allows for an entirely different environment, allowing for bigger conferences, large banquets, balls, or concerts. This flexible venue can adapt to whatever your function may need.
