The Cloud is a unique, modern structure that has become a landmark on Queens Wharf, next to Shed 10, along Auckland's waterfront. The Cloud is a symbol of Aotearoa-Land of the Long White Cloud. Built as a temporary structure to accommodate an inner-city fan zone during Rugby World Cup 2011, it has since won a place in the hearts of Aucklanders and visitors alike. The Cloud is a multi-purpose venue ideal for exhibitions, cocktail functions, meetings, dinners, weddings and large-scale events. At almost 180m long, the pillar-less exhibition floor can accommodate 107 exhibition stands, 1,500people for a seated dinner, 2,000 guests for cocktails and works exceptionally well for large-scale events. The Mezzanine rooms at the northern end of The Cloud offer unparalleled views of the Waitematā Harbour. The Cloud is a part of New Zealand's largest portfolio of iconic venues managed by Auckland Conventions, Venues & Events.
