New Zealand’s largest city is known for its sparkling harbour, diverse dining scene and sophisticated metropolitan vibe. Auckland plays host to key international events, including the upcoming America’s Cup yachting regatta and APEC Leaders’ Week in 2021.
Auckland is a business and innovation hub, with particular expertise in technology, including cyber security, big data, fin-tech, and high-tech manufacturing such as medical devices and aerospace engineering. Innovation hubs like GridAKL are driving collaboration between researchers, business and government.
Auckland offers world class conference venues, ranging from contemporary spaces alongside the harbour to historic buildings and dedicated convention centres. The New Zealand International Convention Centre, currently under construction in the heart of the city, will offer an ultra-modern venue within walking distance of 6,000 hotel rooms and some of Auckland’s best eateries.
