SkyCity Convention Centre

The SkyCity Auckland Convention Centre is located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, just off Queen Street - the central city's retail strip and the hub of the central business district.

From the Convention Centre, it is a 10-15 minute walk to the Viaduct, Auckland’s waterfront development, which is home to some of the city's most popular cafes, bars and restaurants.

An over bridge connects the Convention Centre to the SkyCity Hotel, a variety of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and the famous 328 metre tall Sky Tower.

The SkyCity Grand Hotel lobby, restaurants and bars are built directly below the Convention Centre.
