NZICC on track to open its doors in October 2020

The New Zealand International Conference Centre is on track to open in October 2020. After some construction delays, the centre’s construction is now back on schedule.

Once complete, the precinct will include three hotels, award-winning restaurants, the Sky Tower and the soon-to-be-opened Weta Workshop and All Blacks Experience.

The CINZ Meetings ‘Fiestaval in the Sky’ marked the last occasion the current SkyCity convention centre will host a MEETINGS function.

Callum Mallet, General Manager of the NZICC says “As the largest convention centre to be built in New Zealand and being positioned to be New Zealand’s meeting place for the world, we have a responsibility to embrace sustainable business practices and deliver an authentic experience showcasing our innovative business approach.”

“The NZICC is committed, through construction and operations, to not only ensure we deliver the most favourable experience for delegates, and to lead the way in the protection of our environment, as climate change is recognised as one of the biggest risk facing the planet.

We are also committed to meeting the needs and expectations of the global business events community”, says Mr Mallett.

The NZICC has also adopted a sustainability management plan and will participate in globally recognised, independent verification programmes, including the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The NZICC aims to achieve a certified status following the assessment of the sustainable nature by which the NZICC has been designed, built and delivered.

Prue Daly, Director of Sales at the NZICC, says “We have a responsibility to not only be a centre for New Zealand to be proud of, but to show the world how our natural environment is core to our values as Kiwis.

Every member of our team, from management to suppliers, employees and vendors will ensure innovative solutions to not only be a great experience but also a fully certified Carbon Neutral Centre”, says Mrs Daly.
