About Claudelands

Claudelands is a dynamic city venue set in the welcoming green space of heartland New Zealand.

Crowned the 'Supreme Venue of the Year' and 'Large Venue of the Year' at the 2014 EVANZ Awards, Claudelands includes the stunning 6000-capacity arena and four-star conference and exhibition centre.

The venue is set on 34 hectares of parkland, and caters for a broad range of events including music, entertainment, international sport, conferences, exhibitions, large banquets, meetings and functions.

Claudelands has a rich cultural history, and has been hosting events in Hamilton since the late 1800s.  The extensive redevelopment of Claudelands began in 2007 and an Open Day was held to mark its re-opening in June 2011. 

Claudelands is owned and managed by H3, a unit within Hamilton City Council.
