Top 14 Auckland Venues for Corporate Events

by Luke Ellery | 30 Mar 2023

Auckland is the largest and most densely populated city in New Zealand. As a result, there are some of the most versatile and unique selection of venues for hosting corporate events. Whether your event is small or large, this list is sure to help you find the perfect space to leave your guests feeling excited and inspired. We all know that the idea of “corporate” has expanded over the years - no longer does a corporate event feel like a colourless experience where everyone has to say and do set things. On the contrary, many businesses actively disrupt the norm. Auckland caters to this newfound myriad of corporate styles by providing a variety of venues from minimalist urban style spaces, to venues outside of the hustle and bustle of the city that provides fun-filled experiences.
