It’s always interesting asking local business operators how they ended up…
A new website encompassing all of Nelson City Council’s venues has launched, making it easier than ever to choose the right place to hold your next event.
The Venues website is the first time all of Council’s hireable facilities have been accessible on a dedicated site. A range of up-to-date images showcases each venue, and some even include a virtual tour.
A selection of tools is available to help event organisers plan an event, including providing information on waste minimisation, consents, insurance, funding and marketing. Each page contains an enquiry form that is sent directly to the venue manager for any other questions.
Community and Recreation Committee Chair Tim Skinner says the new website is a fantastic showcase for Council’s sporting, community, heritage and premium venues.
“A lot of work has gone into pulling all of the information for each venue together into an easy to use, easy-to-read format that lets you immediately see which sites are going to be suitable for your needs.”
The website was supported by a $10,000 grant from Tourism New Zealand, through the Business Events Industry Partnership Initiative, and is expected to increase venue bookings.
The funding was allocated to enable professional conference organisers, local development agencies and business and conference venues to undertake additional marketing activity and address some of the challenges posed by COVID-19.
