The venue

SkyCity Auckland

Located at The Grand by SkyCity on Level 7 – this space is light and fresh which is perfect for a day of professional development.

In the heart of the city, is a sanctuary. A lavish hideaway resting high above the bustling night life of the city streets below. Here is where we will meet for Retail:Tech 2023.

This unique event space has floor to ceiling windows, striking decor and an outdoor balcony with stunning views of the iconic Sky Tower.

The SkyCity Food and Beverage team will provide us with food and refreshments during the day and at the networking event. They’re innovative, use sustainable practices using local produce and aim to deliver fantastic food to accompany a fantastic event.

Networking and Wētā Workshop Unleashed tour

Immerse yourself in a wildly imaginative experience.

We’re here to talk about technology, so you may be wondering why SkyCity? Two floors below our venue is a place where innovation and imagination take flight – Wētā Workshop Unleashed.  

Included in your Retail:Tech 2023 experience, you’ll be going on a guided tour of the space. We hope you’ll enjoy this interactive addition to our networking segment and that it will unleash your creativity for your business in the technology space.
