“We hired the Massey AT2 theatre for a pole competition and are so glad we did. Andrea and her team were really helpful with providing all the information required and ensuring we had what we need for the day to run smoothly. The venue itself had all we needed in terms of audience seating, backstage options and a foyer for guests to hang out prior to doors opening. We look forward to using the space again in future”
The room facilities were well-equipped

“In February, we hosted a weeklong workshop at the Massey Albany campus. Our workshop had both online and in-person presentations, as well as breakout workgroups. The room facilities were well-equipped with the technology needed for the presentations; and the space was more than sufficient for the participants to comfortably work in their breakout rooms. The on-site staff were extremely responsive to needs and were a joy to work with during the workshop. In leading up to the course, they were reliable communicators in helping us plan out the week. We definitely hope to be able to run future events here, as the service and venue were terrific. Many thanks to Andrea and her team!”
