The perfect venue for conferences, meetings, exhibitions, and banquets. Versatile and consummate, incorporating no less than ten separate spaces and comprehensive services.
Positioned at the edge of Lake Rotorua, the Energy Events Centre’s unique location within the picturesque Government Gardens provides extensive free car parking and is also within easy walking distance of the retail precinct, accommodation, restaurants, cafes and spa facilities.
The Grand Hall has been described as a “marriage between traditional Maori carving and contemporary indigenous art.” Visitors to the Energy Events Centre enter via the Grand Hall and are immediately captivated by the stunning contrast of contemporary architecture and traditional Maori design elements. The bold colours, huge carved doors, and the illuminated stylised contemporary ‘pou’ (or pole) acknowledging the strength of the city’s Maori affiliations, all catch the eye.
From the Grand Hall, step straight into the BayTrust Forum. With more than 930 square metres of space and a capacity of up to 850 people theatre-style, this stunning room truly has a point of difference. The red wall patterns reflect the surrounding Rotorua lakes and can be backlit for increased impact. With its unique design, high ceilings, and spacious feel, this embracing space is ideal for exhibitions, plenary sessions, workshops and banquet dinners.
A multi-functional area with more than 3500 square metres of single level, pillar-free, specialist tradeshow and exhibition space, the Unison Arena can accommodate 4000 delegate’s theatre-style or 2600 at a seated banquet. Able to be easily organised into three separate areas (the largest in excess of 1500 square metres), means the Arena offers total versatility to meet client needs. Draping options in a variety of configurations mean even more choice.
Meeting & Breakout Rooms
Five breakout and meeting rooms are also available on the mezzanine floor overlooking the Unison Arena. With a capacity to host up to 110 delegates and lots of natural light, each room is suited to a variety of uses.
