Spark Arena, Auckland
Auckland’s Spark Arena is a multipurpose venue located at Quay Park, a central and accessible city location close to Britomart Transport Centre and Parnell’s Strand Station and conveniently located near Auckland’s waterfront, with the cafés and restaurants of Britomart and the Viaduct harbour just a short walk away.
Spark Arena has more than 6,000 square metres of exhibition, presentation, meeting and hospitality space. To accommodate in:situ, the venue’s spacious ‘bowl’ will be divided in two, with the conference’s Industry Exhibition occupying one area and conference presentations, lectures and associated events in the other. The arena’s fixed, removable and retractable seating configurations, and the ability to drape out the terraced seating of the upper levels, means it can be tailored exactly to fit the conference.
Most importantly, the ground floor of Spark Arena, where the conference will take place, is a comfortable and generous space that can successfully accommodate the formal and informal encounters that the conference exists to promote.
