Ko Awatea does not provide room configuration setup unless it is a formal booking for a formally quoted event. Room users may reconfigure the room to meet their requirements. At the end of the scheduled time the client is responsible for restoring the room to its original configuration. Layout formats are provided in each room for reference. Any rooms not returned to configuration may incur charges at the discretion of centre management.
For onsite staff/student bookings, please be advised that if you require time to set up and break down your meeting room, you must ensure that you book this time as part of your reservation. The Ko Awatea Centre often run back-to-back meetings so you do need to ensure you have enough time to reconfigure your room to your requirements.
Should you no longer require your meeting room, notification must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, giving at least 24 hours’ notice.
If you require an accessible room to accommodate your meeting/training, please contact the Centre Team before your booking 09-2760044 ext. 59681
