There are lots of opportunities for city centre businesses to get involved in special promotions and events as well as day to day marketing activities through Heart of the City.
For all businesses
All businesses in the heart of the city can be listed in the hotcity.co.nz business directory, which gives you added visibility across online search engines. Check to see if your listing is up to date, or contact us if you want to make changes to any details or contacts.
Day to day marketing for events, hospitality, retail, arts and more
If your business is in one of the consumer categories we feature, make sure your web listing details (contacts, hours, description and high res photos) are up to date and that you let us know about any event announcements, new openings, special offers and interesting stories by emailing us here. If you have any updates or are not listed, please contact email@example.com
