Napier Conferences & Events operates from the Napier War Memorial Centre. Situated on Napier's Marine Parade, the location makes it ideal for conferences, weddings, events and meetings with the view over the Pacific Ocean providing an unobstructed vista spanning Mahia Peninsula to Cape Kidnappers.
The venue has seven public spaces which can be used separately or configured together. Choose from our stunning Natusch Ballroom, Large Exhibition Hall, Small Exhibition Hall, Foyer and Gallery for larger events. We also have two well-equipped breakout rooms and a boardroom.
Only a pedestrian walkway separates the venue from the coastline and the sea. Napier’s beautiful CBD, with its many attractions, activities, shops, bars and restaurants, is located just a five-minute stroll away. We also have a wide range of quality accommodation options located within a short walk or drive of our venue.
We have dedicated staff, equipment and all the latest technology and gadgets to ensure your event flows without a hitch - technical or otherwise! Whether you need extra lighting, sound, data projectors or live video feeds, we have the expertise and the know-how to fulfill your requirements.
An audio visual, lighting and technical assistant is available to monitor and deal with any issues that may arise - costs available on request. We're also happy to liaise and work with your outsourced audiovisual provider if preferred.
