Online tickets with 100% money back
New Zealand’s best demonstration and largest regional field days, the South Island Agricultural Field Days, which take place on March the 24-26th in Kirwee are moving with the times and taking their ticketing system online for the first time.

Organisers of the event which celebrates its 70th year in 2021, making it the oldest Agricultural Field Days in New Zealand say there’s a number of reasons, starting with being able to better communicate with the interested attendees.

“We want everyone that attends the South Island Agricultural Field days to have the best experience possible, so having a direct line of communication with the attendees will allow us to send maps or timetable changes or any sort of relevant information,” said event manager Tineka Johnstone.

The organising committee has also backed a 100% ticket price refund in the event that the SIAFD doesn’t go ahead due to Covid19, ensuring the public are protected from any losses.

“It’s the right thing to do,” said Johnstone.

“We’re really encouraging people to jump online, book their tickets and skip the queues. It’s the same as going to watch a rugby or cricket game, grab your tickets online and set yourself up for a great couple of days.”

Johnstone says that while online ticketing will also help the event meet the new government guidelines, online ticketing was already in the pipeline prior to those being implemented.

“Farmers and those in the primary industry use technology every day and this is just another example of how utilising technology can help the attendees, the exhibitors and us.”

Tickets can be purchased online with weekly prizes up for grabs.
