From intimate gatherings to grand celebrations for up to 400 guests, JW Marriott Auckland aims to provide a diverse range of options for various occasions, including weddings, gala dinners, seminars, awards nights, and conferences.

The renovated meeting spaces will exhibit a harmonious blend of natural textures and contemporary elements, featuring warm wood tones and a soothing palette to create a serene atmosphere. Boasting nearly 50 square metres of LED walls and dynamic lighting that adapts effortlessly to guests’ needs, the spaces are designed to be the epitome of sophistication in the heart of Auckland.

With expert support and an in-house audiovisual technician, the collaboration aims to elevate the event experience, offering cutting-edge technology for a memorable and seamless occasion.

Girish Talreja, General Manager of JW Marriott Auckland, expresses pride in the launch of the renovated function spaces, providing a hub for local and domestic guests to connect. He notes, “These spaces are the first in New Zealand to offer Microhire’s state-of-the-art audiovisual technology.”

Geoff Townend, Regional General Manager of NSW & NZ at Microhire, shares the excitement of the partnership, stating, “Microhire is delighted to partner with JW Marriott Auckland and further grow our Marriott relationship as we expand into the New Zealand market.”
