List trade deals


The 'Specials' section on the What's On home page is used extensively by:

  • Thousands of visitors pre-panning their show using the website's 'Favourites' function
  • North Port staff looking for specials to feature via the show's social media profiles
  • North Port staff looking for specials to promote to thousands of newsletter subscribers
  • The many thousands of potential show visitors who check out the website but don't attend

Tip: You'd be surprised at how many exhibitors fail to utilise this free service - do not make the same mistake! This underutilised service gets your brand in front of thousands of pre-qualified people.


What's involved?

  1. Log in to the exhibitor area on the show website
  2. Create a trade deal
  3. Add the details of your deal
  4. Upload a photo for your deal

1. Log in to the exhibitor area of the show website

After logging in (see how here), click the ‘Promotions’ dropdown and choose the show you wish to create a trade deal for.


2. Add a trade deal to your page

Click ‘Edit Trade Deal’ button.

This opens the ‘Add a trade deal’ window. If this is your first time entering a new show special, you won't see any listed.

3. Enter your trade deal

Enter a good title to attract attention to your trade deal. Add the description text of your special and any terms such as 'While stocks last' or 'Only available to Show visitors'. Special offer terms and conditions are required by New Zealand law, so be sure to fill out this section.

4. Upload an image for your special

Click the Upload Image' button to upload an image of the product. For best results, upload an image that has been cropped into a square - or you can crop your image using the limited cropping tools available on the site. 

Don’t forget to save your image by clicking the green "Save Image" button.

5. Save it!

Click the ‘Submit” button to save your changes and add your special to your profile.

Repeat the process to add multiple specials to your profile.

6. Preview your page

You can also preview your page by clicking the ‘preview’ button at the top left of the Partner nav bar.
