Skycity Auckland Convention Centre Awarded “Best In Auckland”

SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre has been named overall winner of The Corporate Events Guide 2006 Auckland Convention Centres Award.

SKYCITY Marketing Manager, Jill Birch, says the Corporate Events Guide is widely recognised as the leading events directory in New Zealand for professional event planners.

“As such this is a very exciting achievement for SKYCITY’s new convention centre,” she says.

“The award reinforces our industry leading product and customer service standards, adding an additional reassurance for those wishing to book an event or function with us,” she says.

According to Stuart Macklin, NZ Events Director, SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre was chosen for a wide variety of reasons including its modern facilities, outstanding people, central city location and amount of positive feedback from clients.

“At New Zealand Events we are committed to providing the highest level of service,” says Mr Macklin.

“SKYCITY would have been visited randomly and anonymously by a member of the New Zealand Events team during recent months. The high level of hospitality, knowledge, technical expertise and kindness were a few of the many contributing factors which made SKYCITY the overall 2006 winner,” he says.

To win the award, each qualifying company was graded on a number of categories and awarded a score ranging from 1 – 10 (10 being highest) as per below:
