There’s nothing quite like the atmosphere and ambience of Eden Park, even when the stadium falls silent and the crowds have departed. Access to the stadium 365 days per year as well as box seats to some of the biggest sporting matches are just two of the reasons why New Zealand’s leading organisations have secured an Eden Park Work Suite.
An Eden Park Work Suite provides an opportunity to create a unique workspace or offsite meeting place. Located high above the hallowed turf, an office at this historic ground delivers an impressive work day like no other. “The Park’s seating capacity, transport connectivity, proximity to the city and facilities that cater to all demographics make us an easy option to consider. The stadium was designed to accommodate capacity crowds of all types with permanent toilets, food and beverage outlets, dining rooms and adequate entry and exit points,” says Eden Park’s Chief Executive Officer Nick Sautner.
This cachet is backed by the corporate amenities professionals would expect such as secure WiFi connectivity, a serviced reception and common boardroom, parking, easy access to the train station as well as an abundance of nearby dining options across the Kingsland and Dominion Road precinct.
Among the famed fixtures hosted at the ground over the Park’s 116-year history was the first-ever Rugby World Cup Final in 1987 and following this, the 2011 Final. Both events are stamped in the hearts of Kiwis with the All Blacks hoisting the Webb Ellis on both occasions. Work Suites include access to all of the stadium’s events, which enables hosts to convert their office into a hospitality space to witness some of the country’s premiere sporting clashes unfolding on the turf below.
Aside from the sheer scale of the stadium, and the presence of turf steeped in history dating back to the maiden rugby match more than 100 years ago and first cricket contest almost 90 years ago, there are other advantages to securing an address at New Zealand’s national stadium. Eden Park Catering offers a wide array of food and beverage options available to be delivered to your door or served to you and your guests. No matter what size your office meeting, proposal or party might be, there’s no need to take the festivities elsewhere.
“Many of our corporate clients enjoy and take advantage of this service,” says Sautner. “Our in-house caterer can provide refreshments for any event required and they’re on hand if you decide to host in your Work Suite on a scheduled event day.”
Sautner says his team doesn’t just run a venue, they manage a small city within the stadium walls that requires management of a range of stakeholders and their widespread requirements.
“Our team is committed to ensuring that every patron who walks through our doors has a memorable experience. As well as offering Work Suites, we curate unmatchable events in the bowels of the stadium to showcase all the Park can offer for our clients, from the historic changing rooms to the Club Lounge and larger spaces to host exhibitions – we have facilities to cater for almost all events.”
New Zealand’s national stadium is a destination for a reason. It’s world-famous, delivers a unique and unforgettable experience and it’s not only an Auckland landmark, but a Kiwi icon.
