Frankston has opened its Destination Event Attraction Program (DEAP) for a second year, following a positive response in 2022.
The program offers funding and in-kind sponsorship to support experienced creatives, collaborators, and event organisations to curate and deliver a single or series of events from concept through to presentation in Frankston City.
“We are thrilled to offer the Destination Event Attraction Program for a second year,” said Frankston Mayor Nathan Conroy.
“Frankston is a creative city, and we want to continue to build its reputation as an arts, culture, and tourism destination. The DEAP is a centerpiece to Council’s program to rejuvenate our visitor economy and strengthen our positioning as a destination for major and seasonal events.”
The program supports events across three tiers, from significant commercial events to major community events.
It seeks applications from event organisers that can deliver creative events which will showcase the City’s lifestyle and cultural assets, embrace and build upon the City’s creative arts culture, and drive economic and branding benefits to the local economy.
Applications for the 2023/24 round of the DEAP close on 21 April 2023.
The Program Guidelines and application form are available at Destination Event Attraction Program.
