Located right in the centre of Auckland city and a few steps away from Britomart Transport Centre, the newly refurbished Grand Mercure will host the 2020 Auckland conference. There are a range of beautiful rooms available for those that would like to stay on site. It also has an on-site restaurant and bar, and boasts some of the best Harbour views in the city.

Getting there: 

Walk - Grand Mercure is walking distance from most hotels and serviced apartments in the central city. Walk to the venue and have the chance to check out some Auckland sights or meet the locals.

Bus and train - Britomart Transport Centre is a few steps from Grand Mercure.

Or take the opportunity to try out the newest transport crazes and catch a Lime scooter or Onzo bike to the venue. Just download the app on your phone and you’ll find the scooters and bikes dotted around all over Auckland city ready for you to pick up and use.

If you’re coming from the airport we recommend either booking a taxi/Uber/Ola or you can catch the SkyBus which stops a 1 minute walk from Grand Mercure.
