Both spaces can seat up to 50 people lecture style or 50 people at round tables which seat six people per table.

Centrally located in the heart of Newmarket, Highwic is easily accessible via the motorway and with onsite parking for up to 30 cars, it is the perfect venue for your next meeting.

Tea and coffee can be provided at an additional cost of $5.00 per person.

A projector and screen can be hired for an additional cost.
