We’d love for you to help us mark the special occasion by dressing up in your finest black tie!
However, our main objective is that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing – your own variation of black tie will be perfect. We also encourage and welcome any cultural attire that feels right for you.
GETTING TO THE AWARDS DINNER
The Cordis Hotel is approximately a 20 minute drive from Auckland International Airport. Once you’re there, you can park up at the Wilson public car park located at the rear of the Hotel off Liverpool Street. Alternatively, Cordis Auckland offers valet parking at the entrance of the Hotel for $55.00 per day.
SEATING ON THE NIGHT
We’ll do very our best to ensure that you can sit with your friends and whānau! Tables purchased together will be seated together (or as close as possible). If you’re purchasing tables separately, let us know the name of the table purchaser you would like to be seated near in the ‘who are you supporting’ question prompted when buying tickets online and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
