North Coast Business Events Incentive Fund opens

The North Coast Business Events Incentive Fund has opened this week after receiving grant funding from the Federal Government under the Recovery for Regional Tourism program.

The Business Events Fund provides event managers with the opportunity to secure funding from a pool of $100,000 to help offset costs associated with holding an event on the North Coast.

Funding is available based on the following projected attendance – $5,000 for up to 50 delegates, $10,000 for up to 100 delegates or $15,000 for up to 150 delegates.

The funding is valid only for new business with events being held before May 31, 2022.

“Destination North Coast are delighted to announce the launch of the fund, as it will support our customers to work with local suppliers, in delivering unforgettable North Coast business events,” said Michael Thurston, general manager at Destination North Coast.

“We are proud to play our part in helping the business events sector recover.”

Funding applications close on July 31, 2021.
