The Cloud

With stunning uninterrupted views of the Waitematā Harbour and situated in the heart of downtown Auckland, The Cloud joins the city to the sea.

The Cloud is a unique and modern structure that has become a beloved landmark along Auckland’s waterfront. The venue's design reflects Aotearoa - Land of the Long White Cloud. The Cloud 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 107 3x3m booths, 1,500 people for a seated dinner, 2,000 guests for cocktails and works exceptionally well for large-scale events. The Lower Mezzanine Room at the northern end of The Cloud offers unparalleled views of the Waitematā Harbour.
