We know events, and have designed and crafted venues with your every need in mind. Affordable, functional and stylish, right in the heart of Auckland’s Innovation Precinct. Our event spaces are perfect to hire for your conference, seminar, workshop, roundtable, cocktail event, panel event, exhibition or product showcase.
Seating 100 theatre style, 110 cocktail style and 40-60 workshop style, the GridAKL Event Space is the ultimate venue for your next event in Auckland.
The event space and Tech Café space is divided by a movable wall, so if you have a large scale event in mind talk to us about using both spaces.
After our cafe closes it makes the perfect casual event spot – great for small meet-ups, casual round table discussions or more creative, sprawling workshop sessions.
What kind of projector do we have? How big is our stage exactly? It is all in our spec sheet! If you are after more info, let us know and we will be happy to help out.
Find out the easiest way for you and your guests to get to your event at GridAKL / John Lysaght Building from local parking, through to options for busses and more.
