Venue Capacity Index

Many of New Zealand's conference, convention and meeting venues cater for groups of all sizes in a variety of settings.

For your easy reference, all columns can be sorted simply by clicking on the column heading.  The Venue Name column as well as the Region column will both sort alphabetically, while all other columns will sort in descending order, i.e. from largest to smallest.  

The accommodation capacity is based on the total number of rooms.  

If you click on the name of the venue you will be directed to their website listing which holds further information.    

This table is available only on larger screens
