Whether you are a small New Zealand-based business or a large multinational, Auckland Convention Bureau (ACB) can help you plan every stage of your event, from accessing bid funding to sourcing accommodation and transport quotes. We offer free expert services and advice to event planners as part of our commitment to increase business events in the region.

ACB was formed 20 years ago to promote Auckland as a great city for conferences, conventions and other business events, as well as incentive travel, and to help event planners deliver world-class experiences for delegates.

We are now a not-for-profit division of Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED), Auckland Council’s economic growth agency and have a great record of successful bids on behalf of Auckland in the competitive international business events market.
