Information for Businesses

Rotorua is a cycling town, but not every business here is in the biking business. The Rotorua Bike Festival Passport has been developed to allow local businesses to connect directly with Rotorua Bike Festival participants and spectators.


The app is based on mapping functionality, which shows users where they are in relation to your business, so they can purchase from you and automatically enter the draw to win prizes. You can also provide special Bike Fest offers through the app to further entice users to pay your business a visit!



How does it work?

  1. Register your business. You will appear on the Rotorua Bike Festival Passport Web App.

  2. Your business will appear on a map which shows the user where they are in relation to you. The user can click for more info on your business and any offers you have made available for users.

  3. User comes in to your business and makes a purchase. They then scan the QR code on the poster we have supplied you.

  4. User goes into the draw to win prizes. EASY!


How long does the passport run for?


The 2017 passport will be active from launch date on the 1st of December 2016 through to the end of the festival on the 19th of February 2017. This allows a period of time for participants and businesses to get used to engaging with the new app, and gives businesses the opportunity for a bit of extra coverage over the Christmas period whilst we have visitors in town.



How much does it cost?


There are both contra and cash options available. The product we receive from the contra is used as prizes, and the cash is used to cover the development and administration of the app. The cost structure has been designed specifically to make it affordable and easy for businesses to be a part of the festival and cost-neutral to the festival trust. For more information, email Megan Dimozantos.
