We can co-ordinate an event to suit your specific requirements and with our large garden areas, ponds and rock formations as backdrop to your event, your staff will have the added option and benefit of outdoor activities or simply, beautiful surroundings in which to relax with a deserved glass of wine. For dinner, your guests can soak in the ambience delivered by our canopy of grapevines, the perfect accompaniment to an amazing meal.
Always up to any challenge
Whether you are looking for a venue to host a Christmas party, business seminar, product launch, breakfast, corporate event or celebrations of any size, Markovina are up to the challenge.
Renowned as one of Auckland’s great wedding venues we are able to apply the same skill and care we do with our weddings to your next corporate event. So you can rest assured in the knowledge that with our years of experience, there is no issue we cannot resolve, no reasonable request that we are not able to meet and nothing that could go wrong that cannot be attended to.
If we can pull off a wedding during Cyclone Lusi that culminated in Auckland wide power cuts, without any of the guests at our wedding that night being even slightly aware of the power outage at all the neighbouring properties, then we think we’ve got it covered.
Depending on the type of event you have planned, we have suitable and flexible options to deliver you an amazing, stress free event. So let’s break them down:
Christmas Work Parties
Plenty of options here like our themed Medieval feasts, perfect for a smaller company looking to combine their event with another. Or our fully hosted and full venue use, Christmas function package that include meals, beverage service (including wine, beer and non-alcoholic refreshments), DJ entertainment and even return transportation at very competitive rates.
A conference dinner, in which participants can network and socialise, is the perfect finish to a well organised conference. Attendees can relax and explore our venue while enjoying a drink from the bar and a selection of finger food as the start to your evening dinner.
Take advantage of our vast outdoor areas and let your guests relax and enjoy something quite unique and refreshing – definitely not your standard conference room function here!
With our unique venue and expansive outdoor areas we offer a completely different experience for your next team building day that can include great food, venue, hospitality and a unique space for a multitude of outdoor team building activities. A great way for all your team to bond and have fun together.
At Markovina we have areas available for breakout space and also expansive garden areas so that during breaks guests can relax and take a well earned break in the beautiful outdoors and enjoy the beauty of the landscape surrounding the Estate.
Our exhaustive list of themed events goes some way to showing what we are capable of pulling off here at Markovina. The list is long and highlights our ability to cater to all tastes and preferences. Simply tell us which events you are interested in and we can prepare a package for you, easy as that.
A dinner show performance based on the ever popular Fawlty Towers and Monty Python.
We can arrange a selection of outdoor activities for staff to relax and enjoy along with a menu of your choice. Activities can range from giant sumo wrestling to vertical bungy… or more relaxed activities for the not so adventurous.
With a great band, bucking bronco and sharp shooting this is a really fun night out.
Married to the Mob
Get in the Mafia way of life, learn your Mafia name, take the whacking oath, watch as fate makes an offer you can’t refuse. The Godfather will grant your wishes if you get ‘married to the mob.’
Complete with cheesy American host this event will have guests engaged in competitions, it’s interactive and all about having fun.
Enjoy a meal of tortured and scorned belly of pig with silence of the lambs spikes, plus headless chicken, bits ‘n butts and much more. This is a great opportunity for your guests to dress up and have a frightfully fun night.
Brilliant in summer if you want a great casual event with an amazing gourmet meal.
So with the festive season practically upon now is the perfect time to arrange your next corporate event here at Markovina.
With variety and uniqueness in mind we can cater any package to suit your needs.
Give our team of helpful staff a call and armed with your list of needs, budget details and other specific requirements we can work with you to pull off the perfect end of year event.
