We want all our guests to have an absolutely amazing time at Auckland Design Week. Please read through all the FAQs as they form our code of conduct, which you agree to when you purchase your ticket. Feel free to contact us for any further questions you may have. We hope you enjoy a seamless and enriching experience as you immerse yourself throughout the week!

Registration is exclusive to ticket holders, and will open early March.

Registration to the individual events will open early March. If you register for an event and can no longer attend, please get in touch and we will manually release your spot so someone else can register.

We will not be publicly announcing the times and addresses to each of the ~30 events in the programme, as we want to avoid non-ticketholders from turning up. When registration opens in early March, each ticketholder will be sent a unique link to access their ticket via a mobi-site and within that site they will see the full programme including time, duration and location and will be able to register their attendance at that time.

Via the aucklanddesignweek.com website.

Tickets are not transferable and if we discover any ticketholders sharing their tickets, their passes will be cancelled and they will be permanently removed from the event.

NZRAB have advised they don’t have time to individually assess every event in our programme prior to Auckland Design Week, however invite individuals to assess whether they feel the content is relevant, and if yes, submit individual activity applications online after the event.

Feel free to bring your own water and snacks, but there will be food trucks and other offerings available for purchase. No BYO booze thanks.

We can update this for you, please email us via our contact form.

All ticket sales are final – consider offering it to a friend and update the ticket details online or email us to formalise the transfer.

Send us an email and we will regenerate it for you.

There will be transport provided for both the Design Day circuits on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th March 10am - 4pm via a selection of 15-30 seater vehicles with ADW branding. The transport will drive the whole circuit on repeat utilising seven public bus stops a 1-5min walking distance from each venue. Electric tuk tuks will be provided in 1-2 locations where there is a slightly longer walk. The vehicles will be coming through bus stops approximately every 20mins.

For our Design Day circuits, on both Friday 15th and Saturday 16th March, you can choose to start at one of three ticketing locations in Grey Lynn, Parnell or Mt Eden where you will need to collect your RFID band.

As many as you like however each individual ticket holders details must be entered at checkout.
