Auckland Conference Venues | Meetings | Rydges


Our conference venues by the Viaduct Harbour make your Auckland events extra special. 

Rydges Auckland Hotel offers centrally-located Auckland conference venues where delegates can combine the pleasures of an idyllic harbour setting with a premium conference venue. From intimate Auckland events to grand soirees and weddings of all sizes, our meeting facilities provide a relaxed yet professional setting to be as productive – or as celebratory – as you want to be.

Rydges Auckland is renowned for its Auckland conference venues which consist of 12 individual spaces including the Rooftop Terrace Venue, a breathtaking location on the tenth floor with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the Waitemata Harbour and Auckland Harbour Bridge. The largest space is able to cater for up to 250 delegates and The CUT on Federal's Open Dining Room can cater up to 400. The smallest are our Executive Rooms suitable from two to 24 delegates.  Our conference and event spaces are modern with an abundance of natural light and a ceiling height of 3.6 metres.

Our Auckland conference venue options also include a spacious mezzanine level that is the perfect setting for informal meetings, product launches, pre-dinner drinks or networking cocktail functions with an abundance of natural light and contemporary furnishings.

Our dedicated and professional operations team will ensure that you have everything you need on hand from the latest in presentation technology to delectable catered cuisine.

When your conference is over, sit back and relax with a drink in The CUT On Federal or extend the evening and enjoy a well-deserved dinner in The CUT where you will experience the very best cuts of meat that New Zealand has to offer. Reservations recommended.
