Vodafone Events Centre
Eventfinda is proud to be the exclusive ticketing agency of the Vodafone Events Centre (VEC), one of Auckland’s most iconic venues for festivals, concerts, theatre, community activities and more.
The busy South Auckland location has hosted more than 2.2 million patrons, clients and guests in the past decade, utilising their flexible spaces to accommodate events from a board meeting for 10, to a concert for 4000.
“We chose Eventfinda as our ticketing partner because they provide the simplest platform for users, which in itself is a very complex thing to do,” says Joseph Casalme, VEC GM of Community and Schools Engagement.
“The layout of the ticketing platform is very user-friendly. It has a very intelligent logic system that enables virtually anyone to use it. That’s very important for us considering 85% of our ticketed events are run by community groups, entrepreneurs and not-for-profits who may have little experience in ticket sales or do not have professional or dedicated ticketing staff.”
A dedicated Eventfinda event manager is also on hand to assist event promoters who book the venue’s Theatre or Arena to ensure the seating plan is accurate and that customers get exactly what they pay for, with no surprises. The event manager also facilitates Eventfinda marketing campaigns.
“As New Zealand’s largest entertainment guide and provider of event information to major media sites, Eventfinda offers a powerful marketing platform to help promoters drive awareness of their event and maximise ticket sales,” says Casalme.
“The integration of ticketing and marketing capabilities makes the whole system extremely user friendly for our customers.”
