GT2016 will be held at the Skycity Convention Centre in downtown Auckland, New Zealand. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, with a population of nearly 1.5 million, and is home to one in three New Zealanders. It is also the country’s biggest urban centre, its financial and economic powerhouse, and the gateway to New Zealand. With strong Māori and European roots, Auckland is also the largest Polynesian city in the world, and a true melting pot of cultures from around the globe. This cosmopolitan character is what gives Auckland such an exciting diversity of cuisine, art, music, cultural experiences and events to experience any time of year.
