Promote on Eventfinda – help us lift the region’s profile and attract visitors to your next event 

Do you have an event coming up during Summer? And are you using Eventfinda to showcase your event and draw in a sell-out crowd? 

Here at CEDA, we’re showcasing the region to potential and upcoming visitors, and we want to make sure our region is putting its best foot forward, and that means having all the amazing events on offer in Manawatū showcased.  

Visitors to the region make a hugely positive economic impact on local businesses, from retail and hospitality through to experiences, accommodation and more. Help us show the best of the region by ensuring your event is visible to our visitors and potential visitors – giving them more reason to visit, spend and stay longer!    

So, why list on Eventfinda? 

Events are a major drawcard for the Palmy and Manawatū, and our region hosts a year-round calendar of unmissable events for all to enjoy.  

Eventfinda is the top events platform in New Zealand and is completely FREE to use!  

The region’s key website Manawatū, our ‘shop window’, pulls every event listed on Eventfinda for our region and showcases it. This means that without listing on Eventfinda, you’re diluting the potential audience you could reach and your potential event attendees.  

 The Benefits  

As a national events database, listing with Eventfinda means your event is not only shared with their 1,378,594 members but is additionally distributed out to other websites with event listings such as: 

 Listing with Eventfinda is a great marketing tool too, as you can see how many times your event listing has been viewed.

  1. Go to and set up an Eventfinda account (if you don’t already have one) 
  2. Confirm registration via their return email and head back to 
  3. Once logged in, simply click the ‘Create Event’ button in the top right corner.   
  4. You will be asked to fill in the title, category, subcategory, description, website, venue, date and time and ticketing information for your event.
