If you want to dodge the ticket queues at the Northland Field Days in Dargaville from March 1- 3 this year you will be able to go online.
The Northland Field Days has teamed up with iTicket for the first time ever to let people buy tickets online with a credit card, print them off and then present them at the gate for the first time in 2012 allowing them to shave a lot of time off waiting times.
It is one of the first regional field days to offer this method of ticket booking.
According to Northland Field Days president, Lew Duggan, farmers and agricultural businesses are starting to move online so it is important that they are able to interact with the Northland Field Days in that space as well.
With so much of people’s lives being online these days it was only fitting that we were online as well, said Mr Duggan.
According to Northland Field Days staff the availability of online tickets are just part of a digital overhaul of the Northland Field Days website.
Anybody interested in going to the field days can now see the upcoming events, exhibitors maps, a list of competitions and a list of giveaways and free activities and services available at the day as well as regular updates from the organization’s Facebook page.
People will be able to come to the field days better prepared than ever before, said Lew Duggan. The new website will make many people’s Field Days trips easier, more enjoyable and more worthwhile.
To celebrate the new site the Northland Field Days was giving away entry and a meal for you and three friends as well as a helicopter ride for one of the first 1200 people to like the Northland Field Days page on Facebook.
