Host an Event

The Enterprise Precinct Innovation Campus can offer the BNZ Lounge/Boardroom for an event.

Function Space

The BNZ Lounge is utilised for all events. Located in the centre of Epic it faces the communal kitchen and with its sliding doors offers additional space in the central atrium. (link to photos of internal space of lounge, exterior space showing sliding doors open, photos of the boardroom and the central atrium).

There is also a small boardroom at the rear of the lounge.

We can cater for formal and informal events. The lounge is furnished with casual modern seating that can be shifted to suit your requirements, and if you want to use the beanbags there are a number of these available. Alternatively, by removing the furniture in the lounge you could hire portable chairs from The Party Warehouse and set them up theatre style in the lounge.

Capacity

Informally with the casual layout the lounge capacity is 30-40 pax.

With hired seating placed theatre style the capacity is up to 55pax.

If you wish to have a more formal function (evenings only) then the atrium area can be utilised as well, enabling larger groups.
