Location and Venue


Rated as the third most liveable city in the world, Auckland is an exhilarating mix of natural wonders and urban adventures. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping, and you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland, New Zealand, our largest and most diverse city.

Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have harbours on two separate bodies of water. The central part of the urban area of Auckland covers a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean.

Travel to Auckland is simple with several domestic and international flights arriving daily. The airport is conveniently located just 30 minutes from the City.

Car Rental

Long, sunny but cool days tend to linger long into New Zealand’s autumn with average high temperatures of between 15C and 18C. in May. Nights can be cooler around 11C so pack your warm clothes!
