Generator is located in a fantastic heritage office space – they’re at 22-28 Customs Street East, just around the corner from Shaky Isles in the Auckland CBD. The entrance is right next to Cafe Hanoi and opposite Xu Xu.

It’s a minute’s walk from the train and across the road from the ferry. There’s free parking for your bike or scooter and they’re surrounded by carparks.


Doors will open at 6pm. There will be sushi and a selection of drinks served until the speakers start at 6.45pm. A cash bar will also operate for the evening if you’re after a beverage which isn’t on offer.

The three speakers should conclude by about 7.30 and we’ll wrap up at 8pm.

Thank you
