A unique space for your next Seminar or Conference
Markovina Vineyard Estate offers a unique location for your next company conference or seminar. The flexibility of our function room enables us to hold medium and larger groups, with areas for breakout spaces available.
During breaks in the program, your guests can explore and relax in our expansive garden and covered courtyard areas.
Once the formalities are over, we can easily transform your conference space into a relaxed area to provide an enjoyable end of function event if you are looking to end the day with festivities.
Only 20 minutes from the CBD, we are just a short drive from the northwestern and northern motorways, making for easy travel to and from the event.
Perfect for larger events
We specialise in larger seminars & conferences
When you book a seminar or conference we book the venue exclusively for your event. The design of our venue enables intimate areas or large open spaces to seat all your guests. We have plenty of space for catering to be served separately, breakout areas and of course our gardens which can be enjoyed throughout the day.
Our venue can cater for 200 guests seated at tables or over 300 guests seated theatre style.
All weather breakout & mingling area
Amazing outdoor spaces with stunning indoor options
On a warm summers day, your delegates have the freedom to explore the gardens and enjoy the sun, a great way to recharge the energy levels before the next session.
On a winters day, we also have a fully enclosed wet weather breakout room where guests can warm up by the fire and have a break from the learning space. You also have the option to seat 200 guests theatre style in this events space.
Extensive gardens to help refresh your delegates
Something quite different to being stuck in the concrete jungle
Markovina Estate is located on 10 acres in Kumeu, only a short 20 minutes from Auckland’s CBD but offering multiple conference areas, garden locations and pond features.
Exclusively yours when you book a seminar with us, you and your delegates have the freedom to explore the Estate. Music in the gardens creates a relaxed atmosphere that is welcomed between sessions.
You are also welcome to arrange other team building activities onsite to break up the day.
Food & Beverage
A focus on great food
When planning a seminar or conference we work with you to create a menu to suit your requirements. Our experience proves the importance of having light meals for guests early on during your seminar, as you want guests to have energy while in sessions.
However, our focus is on great quality meals that your guests enjoy.
