Grand Millennium Auckland unveils enchanting ballroom makeover 

A first look at what is arguably one of Auckland’s best ballrooms for captivating conferencing, weddings, and gala events

Grand Millennium Auckland has unveiled its ballroom transformation following an extensive makeover that features a custom-designed lighting sculpture, an 11.5m LED wall, and updated interiors. 

Adorning the entire ballroom ceiling, The Sky Garden lighting handcrafted sculpture featuring over a million meticulously hand-assembled LED lights has transformed the space into a realm of enchantment. Drawing inspiration from graceful spring blossoms of pink, purple and white wisteria flowers, the lighting sculpture embraces viewers in an immersive experience, adaptable across three dimmable settings.

The bespoke carpet design is inspired by the Wai o Horotiu stream that charts its course under the city and flows to Te Waitematā harbour. Changing colour tones reflect a widening of the river connecting to a sense of place and grounding the ballroom’s interior and experience to the past, and the city’s future.

The Grand Ballroom is one of the largest ballrooms in Auckland ideal for catering to a 1000-guest cocktail function, 800 delegates for a theatre style conference or a 550-guest banquet. The 830sqm space can be separated into four sections for smaller events that are all accessible via the pre-function area with views of Auckland city. 

Grand Millennium Auckland General Manager, James Billing, said: “We’re ecstatic to showcase what is arguably one of Auckland’s best ballrooms for captivating conferencing, weddings, and gala events. The new design is even better than we had envisaged thanks to our refurbishment partners, James Russ Studio and Material Creative who have brought to life our vision, elevating the elegance and grandeur that has always been here.” 

To celebrate the new-look ballroom, Grand Millennium Auckland is offering complimentary usage of the LED wall for gala dinners with 300+ people booked and held in 2024. 

The Grand Ballroom refresh forms part of Grand Millennium Auckland’s extensive $30million makeover across food and beverage venues, meetings and events spaces and guest rooms.
