With iconic design New Zealand Central (NZC) is our business oasis situated in the heart of Shanghai and is there to help New Zealand organisations progress in China. Whether you need space for staff to work from for a few days, private meeting space, casual meeting space, a venue for staff training or a venue for product launch events NZC is the perfect place. Facilities include meeting rooms, a large function room, kitchen facilities, basic audio-visual setup and business centre services (WiFi, hot-desks, and facsimiles).
The NZC function room can be configured in various ways with table seating for up to 40 people, lecture-style seating for up to 60 and standing events for up to 120. The main boardroom can accommodate 20 people or can be split into 2 separate rooms.
NZC now has transferred its legal entity and is operating as part of the Shanghai Consulate-General under a non-commercial model, which means there is no charges for member companies to use the facilities. Direct commercial activities like making sales or signing commercial agreements will need to be done somewhere else. To become an NZC member company you just need to complete a few application details that show what you’re doing for the country and we’re away.
During the time it’s booked companies are encouraged to make the space their own and where that requires additional services like catering, specific venue setup, entertainment, simultaneous translation etc. parties will need to enter into their own arrangements with third party providers.
If you have questions about NZC, need advice about what activities are suitable for the venue, want recommendations about third party services or simply want to make a booking our NZC Event Managers will be happy to help. As a thought-starter here’s a list of the types of activity often happening:
- Training and workshops for staff and distribution partners
- Product promotions: breakfast/lunch/dinner/cooking demonstration/food tasting/wine tasting/product demonstration
- Meetings and seminars
- Alumni events
- Opening ceremonies
- Press conferences e.g. launch of products/services
- Recruitment - staff interviews
