ANZ Viaduct Events Centre facts for kids
The ANZ Viaduct Events Centre was a stand-alone, multi-purpose events centre built on the Halsey Street extension wharf, Wynyard Quarter of Auckland, New Zealand. It was owned and operated by Regional Facilities Auckland, an organisation under the control of Auckland Council. Opened in August 2011 at a cost of approximately $32 million, the 6,000 square metres (65,000 sq ft) facility offered eight separate rooms suitable for a wide range of events including conferences, gala dinners and exhibitions.
Since opening, it hosted major events, most notably the New Zealand Fashion Week. The centre was also usually busy with numerous corporate functions, dinners and conferences. Several schools had also chosen the centre for their annual ball.
The ANZ Viaduct Events Center is now permanently closed, and the building has been converted to the home base of Emirates Team New Zealand in their defence efforts for the 36th America's Cup presented by Prada and run by The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron
