For fifteen years, the Entertainment Book has been helping New Zealanders live life to the full by making outings to movies, holidays, restaurants and family activities more accessible. At the same time, it has been providing funds for community projects in almost every region of New Zealand. This year, to celebrate the milestone - the Entertainment Book will be available in two formats. The traditional hard copy book, as well as the new Digital version which can be downloaded to your phone.
“Entertainment Books are all about discovery and encouraging people to try new places. We’re often told people find restaurants and experiences they never would have heard about otherwise,” says Brian McGinn from Entertainment Publications. “The new Entertainment Digital Membership opens the offers up to a more mobile audience who can be reminded of opportunities while they are on the go.”
Five new annual Entertainment Books and the new Entertainment Digital Memberships will be launched in participating regions: Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch/Nelson, Dunedin/Invercargill/Queenstown and Waikato/Bay of Plenty in April.
The Entertainment Book makes every dollar you spend go further for yourself and at the same time, your purchase benefits the community with 20% of every Book sold going towards community fundraising. Charities, schools, hospitals, rotary and sporting clubs, religious groups, scout and girl guides, as well as research foundations and surf lifesaving clubs are just a few of the entities who benefit from Entertainment Book fundraising each year. Over the past 15 years The Entertainment Book has generated over $13M for more than 3000 community groups and charities across New Zealand.
In addition to helping fundraising organisations, the Entertainment Book has a significant impact on the more than 4000 restaurants and other businesses who are involved, injection in excess of $25,000,000 into the restaurant industry in the last 12 months.
“What many people don’t realise is that the hospitality industry really benefits from the business the Entertainment Book brings to them,” says Brian. “One of the key challenges for the hospitality industry is getting people to dine out more often and the Entertainment Book does just that.”
The new 2014/2015 Entertainment Memberships will be available from April in two formats – the traditional Entertainment Book and the brand new Entertainment Digital Membership, both filled with thousands of up to 50% off and 2-for1 offers.
