Your vibrant host city

Host City

trenz 2014 is happening in the heart of
the auckland waterfront on the waitemata harbour.

Host City: Auckland

You’ll encounter world-class shopping, the freshest food and wine, vibrant Pacific people and plenty of adventure in the clean natural environment.

New Zealand’s harbour city is one of the stars of the Pacific Rim. Auckland buzzes with excitement and is rated one of the world’s best cities for visitors and conferences. The city has a fast-growing cosmopolitan population of 1.4 million. It is the hub of a unique region where big-city style meets natural beauty. With TRENZ waterside in the central city — all your activities are just a short walk away.


TRENZ 2014 headquarters is the Queens Wharf complex on Auckland’s Waterfront, made up of The Cloud and Shed 10.

The Cloud, a landmark sustainable structure on inner-city Queens Wharf, hosts many of Auckland’s most successful events. The organic white building is named for Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud, the name given to New Zealand in Maori legend.

Shed 10 next door is a refurbished historic cargo depot, now Auckland’s primary cruise-ship terminal.

These important character buildings form an important part of Auckland’s heritage and will host events for all delegates at TRENZ 2014.
