New Zealand ticketing company Eventfinda has been appointed Ticketing Provider for the main venues managed by the Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC).

As QLDC’s ticketing supplier for the Queenstown Events Centre and the Queenstown Memorial Centre, Eventfinda is the recommended supplier for all music, sports, lifestyle, cultural and family events in those venues.

James McGlinn, CEO of Eventfinda says, "We are proud to be QLDC’s ticketing partner and we look forward to providing exceptional service to its clients, promoters and consumers with Eventfinda’s award-winning ticketing platform.

"This follows quickly on the heels of another significant ticketing contract win at the Trusts Arena in Auckland. Ticketing at major venues is the future for Eventfinda - with this appointment we will demonstrate we can deliver an industry-leading ticketing experience for our venue clients, their hirers, and the event-going public".

For the ticket buyer, Eventfinda’s ticketing system is fast, easy, non-intrusive and there are no surprise fees added to ticket purchases. Eventfinda has always provided immediate and upfront display of all ticket charges from the moment of selection.

For promoters and venues, Eventfinda’s platform is cloud-based and provides a platform that dramatically increases speed to market, flexibility and cost efficiencies and provides access to its unparalleled audience reach and remarketing technology.

Rachelle Greene, QLDC’s Manager of Sport and Recreation says the Council chose Eventfinda as its preferred ticketing agent after feedback from ticket buyers and event managers. "They told us they were looking for a ticketing provider which offered cost-effective options, an easy to use system with 24/7 real-time sales reporting and continuous investment in technology and improvement. We’re confident Eventfinda has all of those attributes and will deliver an excellent service."
