There are 2 listing options for business.
Both listing options have to same inclusions, however our featured list sits above the standard list in each category. So this means if you take a featured listing, your position will be secured for as long as you list with us. A standard listing will move down as new featured listings join our directory.
All our business listings go in date order, so the sooner you list your business the better position you’ll have.
You can list events with us for FREE if you have your business listed in our Business Directory, or you can choose a Featured Event for $100 if you don’t have a business listed in our Business Directory. You can list an evet up to 8 weeks before the event date.
