Adding a Listing

Please check that your event/venue listing has not already been created by using the search function at the top of the website. Follow the instructions for Claiming a Listing if your event/venue has already been created.

It takes just a few minutes to add your listing on OffWestEnd. You’ll need to know information about the event/venue and have some images for it too. Venue listings require a logo and a high-resolution image whereas event listings only require a high-resolution image. The image will be the main banner for your event and can be displayed in several places around the website.

Once an event has been created, the Event can be linked to a venue.

Add your Listing to OffWestEnd

  1. To start the process, click on the “Advertise via OffWestEnd.com” button at the top of our website. Alternatively, click here.
    Tip: The advertise button may not appear if you’re using a device with a smaller screen. Use the link above to go there instead.
  2. Select your listing type – Event or Venue.
  3. `If you’re not already logged in, you must login or create an account with us. Click here to find out how.
  4. You’ll be asked to select a listing package. So that we can ensure the quality of listings, and make sure that they are kept up-to-date, all listings expire after a certain period of time, but can be re-listed in future without having to re-create the listing from scratch.
  5. When you’ve selected your package, you’ll need to enter the details that are requested – these are different depending on whether the listing is a venue or event. See below for specifics.
  6. After you’ve submitted all of the details, we just need to check that you’re not a robot! Click on the reCAPTCHA tick box and then (providing that you’re not a robot), you’ll be able to preview your listing. Click on “Preview”.
  7. The preview section shows you what your listing page will look like once it has been approved. If you’re happy, click submit. If you need to change something, go back.
  8. If you opted for a paid listing, you will be prompted to pay online via our secure system.
  9. Once everything is done, your listing will be submitted for approval – we just need to make sure that it meets our guidelines.
