About Us

Nelson Events Strategy

The underlying objective of the Nelson Events Strategy is to stimulate Nelson City’s economy by bringing new spending through visitors coming to Nelson for distinct events in the shoulder and off season. This is achieved by:

  • Promoting events in Nelson Tasman via www.itson.co.nz which is funded by Nelson City Council and Tasman District Council
  • Nelson City Council's Events Marketing and Development Programme which provides sponsorship funding to support the development of events within Nelson City in the shoulder and off seasons.
  • Providing support and resources for event organisers such as The Event Organisers Handbook and The Event Planning Directory which are hosted on ItsOn.co.nz.
  • Find out more about the Nelson Events Strategy.
