International Antarctic Centre Events

Conference Venues Function Rooms
The International Antarctic Centre  offers a number of different venues depending on the size and requirements of your function.  You can hire a small meeting room, hire a movie theatre or hire the entire attraction.

Conveniently located near the airport, the International Antarctic Centre has two conference rooms, both situated on the mezzanine floor. Both with plenty of natural light, the Sir Ed Room offers views over our atrium area while the Margaret Bradshaw Room has views out to the runway and Southern Alps.

With free car parking, handy meeting tools included, and an on-site café to fully cater your conference, the International Antarctic Centre is the perfect place to hold your next day meeting. Take a break with a Hagglund Field Trip, a cuddle with a Husky or a 4D movie!

The Atrium is a superb venue for everything from seated dinners to cocktail evenings, balls to product launches.  An elegant dining space for up to 130 guests, the Atrium can also accommodate 250 guests for cocktail functions.
