Promoting your event to a wider audience
Eventfinda – www.eventfinda.co.nz
Upper Hutt event organisers, big or small, should use Eventfinda to promote their events. Tens of thousands of people visit Eventfinda every month, so it provides a great opportunity to reach a wide audience. Eventfinda is a free event listing service and with so many Upper Hutt events being listed Eventfinda has created a special Upper Hutt section, making it even easier for people to find your event.
