Exhibition halls

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 allows for 400 3m x 3m exhibition booths, maximised by a central 9m high ceiling 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.

Meeting spaces

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 four levels.

Designed for maximum viewing this tiered, theatre-style plenary space can host up to 2,850 or two separate 1,200 events concurrently. Surrounding meeting rooms, gallery and pre-function space is entirely flexible to suit any event.

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.

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.
