New immersive AKL experience

It doesn’t seem that long ago that SkyCity announced the closure of its convention centre to make way for new attractions from two of New Zealand’s most iconic brands – Weta Workshop and the All Blacks. The team from TMS Solutions were recently invited to an exclusive open day and imagine our surprise when we went up those familiar escalators from Federal Street and walked into something completely unexpected.
 
The All Blacks Experience and Weta Workshop Unleashed opened in December 2020 and what we experienced was not only immersive guided tour experiences but also venues that can be transformed into one of a kind event spaces providing meeting rooms for group of 20 to 50, sit down dining options for up to 250 people or stand up cocktail functions for up to 700. 

Both experiences have teamed up with the SkyCity Events team to run events within the spaces, and while they might be working in a very different looking front of house, they are seasoned experts in running events within what used to be the SkyCity Auckland Convention Centre.  In a true partnership model between all parties, they are further supported by audio visual company Streamliner who have installed state of the art technology into both venues.
 
But don’t take our word for it, we would encourage everyone to go and stand on the green grass or immerse yourself in outer space in these fantastic new Auckland offerings.
