Ellerslie Event Centre prides itself on both its versatility and attention to detail, providing clients with a fully-serviced, quality experience, close to Auckland’s CBD.
Set on the grounds of the historic Ellerslie Racecourse, New Zealand’s premier thoroughbred racing venue, Ellerslie Event Centre offers large, beautifully-established outdoor surroundings seldom found at such a facility in Auckland city. The picturesque setting ensures any type of meeting, conference or event is worlds away from the traditional boardroom environment - yet is only 10 minutes from downtown Auckland.
The venue can cater for small meetings of 12+ people through to 500 in a classroom setting; 750 in a banquet setting; 1,100 in a theatre setting; 1,200 in a cocktail setting and 8,000 in an expo setting. What’s more, acres of vast park-like spaces means it’s well set up for outdoor events accommodating audiences into the thousands.
For those seeking a premium option, we are also home to Tote on Ascot. Originally built in 1885 and once home to the world’s first automatic totalisator machine, today this charming building has been painstakingly restored to accommodate events of all sizes, from the opulent to the intimate. Looking for an outdoor option? In the summer months, we can also offer a silk-lined, floored marquee, available to hire at a fraction of the usual cost for six months of the year.
Ellerslie Event Centre provides competitive packages and welcomes anyone that would like to make an appointment to view its versatile facilities
