Destination & Venue

Vodafone Events Centre

Auckland's premiere centre for conferences, events, exhibitions, functions and concerts.

770 Great South Rd, Wiri, Manukau, 2104 Auckland


Welcome to the most iconic event venue in Auckland for conferences. The Vodafone Events Centre is perfectly located a mere 10 minutes from the airport and less than 25 minutes from the centre of Auckland.

Your support when Goodfellow hires this venue enables subsidised access to the facilities for the local community, inspiring them to set a goal, follow through and to achieve. In 2018 more than 51,000 children have been able to utilise these facilities free of charge, or heavily discounted rates. Of this, 40,000 children used the Vodafone Events Centre in their community and schools programmes, and 11,000 at Vector Wero Whitewater Park. Outside of the arts education programmes, Vodafone has invested over $610,000 in local community groups, helping them with venue hire sponsorship, artist’s fees, and staff and audiovisual hire for their events.


The Vodafone Events Centre is accessible to Manukau township and transport links while at the same time being nicely tucked away from distractions. There is more than enough free parking with 750 secure car parks on site, allowing you to completely focus for the day without the hassle of renewing your parking.


The airport is only a 15-minute drive from the Vodafone Events Centre. Taxis are available at all times of the day from the front of the airport terminal.

A taxi fare from the airport to the Vodafone Events Centre is around $45.
