Albert-Eden venues prove popular for event hire

Published: 9 September 2019

Albert-Eden’s 10 community venues are well-loved and well used with over 297,000 visits over the last 12 months.  

On average, the area's venues have been used for between 13 and 43 hours each time they are rented out. The most common use is for religious activity, making up 19 per cent of hires, and art and culture events, at 17 per cent.

A lot goes on behind the scenes in maintaining the smooth running and upkeep of the community venues to make sure that they are fit for purpose.

“We have our team in the office taking bookings and guiding people through our online booking system as well as our team out on the road, meeting and greeting our customers and making sure the venues are up to standard,” says Christine Waugh, Manager Venues for Hire, Auckland Council.

The overall satisfaction level from users sits at a high 88 per cent and 89 per cent of those who used the Auckland Council owned and managed venues are likely to recommend their use to family and friends.
