You don't need to work in venue management or events to know this: people need venues. Whether it be gathering at larger events like wedding receptions and birthday parties, making things happen through business meetings and corporate events or just enjoying a great night of live music, venues are an important part of the social, economical and cultural fabric of our community.

But much like the current cost of living, venues and running events can be expensive. Some hireage fees can deter or even push people out of celebrating major milestones or meeting about important matters. So what are some great venues doing about this? Providing their spaces for free. Yup, you read it right - F R E E. Besides making the budget happy, free venue hire is super important to communities. They help people celebrate, further commerce and add to a city's culture.

How so, you ask? Using examples of two free venues in the Auckland region - the Eastdale Hub and Vincent St. Pop-up - let's see how the services these venues offer can positively impact their people:

1. Celebrations - The Eastdale Hub is the perfect spot for all kinds of functions. Planning a kid's birthday party? The family friendly venue has an upstairs and downstairs area that can be used for meetings and fun activities. Also, it borders Eastdale Reserve, if you want to take the party outdoors!

By providing free venue hire and even more low-cost options like self-catering, spaces like the Eastdale Hub can make celebrating major moments more accessible to people in their communities. These venues show that hosting wedding receptions, engagement parties or birthdays in a beautiful and functional space shouldn't mean breaking the bank - because what's most important is having a great time and connecting with the people you love.

2. Commercial Development

Auckland is the main business hub of New Zealand. While many businesses have their own spaces, some need to hire out rooms to meet, train staff and even provide services. For start-ups, hiring venues for these requirements can be expensive, which could deter the development of some cool initiatives.

The Vincent St. Pop Up are tackling this issue by providing spaces for free. Auckland CBD's Vincent St. Pop Up offers two rooms suitable for meetings; the Tuarua room and the Tuatoru room. Both have access to tables and chairs, with the former also offering a whiteboard and markers. Best of all, all this space has access to a kitchen for when you need a hot drink to get those team meetings flowing!

3. Cultural Development

A city is not without its culture, and Auckland is no exception. Whether its the theatre, art or live music scene, each creative venture adds character to the community - and its not just larger events either, like international acts performing at Auckland City's Spark Arena. Every class, rehearsal or group no matter how small makes up the culture of a place, and the more things are happening, the more vibrant a community is!

All of the above spaces are perfect for classes and workshops. The Tuatahi Room at the Vincent St. Pop Up even has a stage that can be used for all types of performances and rehearsals. Eastdale Hub's upstairs area is great for rehearsals and creative workshops. That's why free venue hire is important - without it, many groups who need space and certain facilities wouldn't be able to meet. Also, if venues are free, people running classes can offer these at a lower price or at no cost at all - offering people in the community who otherwise couldn't afford it access to learning and social opportunities.

1 + 2 + 3 = CONNECTIONS

All of these awesome impacts create a web of connections which turn a city into a COMMUNITY. This is the stuff that makes a place like Auckland thrive and become a hub that people want to get amongst. Free venue hire opens up a whole new web of connections for those that might not get access - and isn't that what community is all about?

So Aucklanders! If you are looking to celebrate, meet, teach or connect, consider booking one of our amazing free venues like the Eastdale Hub and Vincent St. Pop Up. Make sure to check out SpacetoCo for more spaces that offer free venue hire in Auckland too!

Reviews from our customers

“SpacetoCo is perfect for small businesses like mine that need affordable and versatile spaces. The SpacetoCo service is second to none. You won't be disappointed!”

Kylie, Marlee & Me Creations

“The multiple dates booking is obscenely easy to use. In fact, the whole process was super smooth.”

Joel, Firebird Learning

“Being situated in the Heritage Moores Building on Henry St in the heart of Fremantle, we recognised that our Spaces were desired by many but known only by a few. SpacetoCo offered us a chance to not only streamline our processes around the booking of Space but gave us an opportunity to be exposed to a wider audience. We’ve since taken bookings for weddings, baby showers, documentary shoots and group workshops. The power of local people accessing local space is a vision we share with SpacetoCo, and one that I would encourage all business owners to consider”

Jennifer, PaperBird Books

“I was delighted to find the space. It is a unique space in the heart of the city that strikes the perfect balance between practicality and style. The booking process, the facilities and the service were impeccable, and the space itself is cool. It was perfect for our recent media event.”

Tahlie, Community News

“SpacetoCo has helped me turn a bit of extra space in our office into a thriving co-working space in the heart of Subiaco. As a host, I love the transparency and flexibility I have with the platform, allowing us to manage bookings, guest payments and communication in one area. We get local and national enquiries from SpacetoCo for people needing a hot desk or workshop space for an hour, a day or a month, and I love that they can find Ampersand Collective without any extra work required from me!”

Allison, Ampersand Collective

“SpacetoCo is a great solution for finding beautiful, interesting and affordable spaces. I often run small and medium-sized events and I’ve already been able to find two gorgeous new venues for hosting them. It takes the guesswork and endless searching out. I’m looking forward to exploring more!”
