The What's On websites were first put together in 2014 by Broadbiz Web Services as three different websites; What's On Broadstairs, What's On Margate and What's On Ramsgate.
The websites in their own right were tremendously successful and between 2014 and April 2017, over 7,000 individual events have been listed with more than 100,000 people visiting the websites to find out what is going on in the area.
In April 2017, the team at Broadbiz decided that a wider reaching What's On Thanet site would be a better tool for visitors and residents of Thanet and the relaunch was made on 10th April 2017.
What's On Thanet allows event organisers to upload details of their own events to the site for free using either the desktop or mobile version of the website. Enhanced listings are also available at a small cost per event. All entries are then authorised by Broadbiz to check for any obvious errors or spurious submissions; we can't check for the accuracy of the details and that will always lie with the event organiser. Once that is done, the event is live and visible by website visitors.
Now that over 60% of web traffic now comes through mobile devices such as phones and tablets, we have an easy-to-use mobile version which includes every single aspect of the desktop site but in a nice format. You can even add a link to the home page of your device and you will see that pop-up when you first access the website
Here at Broadbiz, we are always looking to improve our services so if you have any thoughts on what we can do to improve this service, please feel free to contact us.
At What's On Thanet, we always do everything we can to make sure the information we hold is correct but we are reliant on organisers. Events can be subject to change, so we recommend you check details with them.
