Grand Millennium Auckland unveils revamped ballroom


Grand Millennium Auckland has unveiled its revamped ballroom that features a custom-designed lighting sculpture, an 11.5m LED wall and updated interiors, as part of the hotel’s $30 million makeover.

Adorning the entire ballroom ceiling, The Sky Garden lighting sculpture handcrafted by James Russ Studio features over a million meticulously hand-assembled LED lights.

The Grand Ballroom is one of the largest ballrooms in Auckland, catering to a 1,000-pax cocktail function, 800 delegates for a theatre style conference or a 550-pax 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.

“We’re ecstatic to showcase what is arguably one of Auckland’s best ballrooms for captivating conferencing, weddings, and gala events,” said Grand Millennium Auckland general manager James Billing.

“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 more than 300 people booked and held in 2024.
