Event funding now available
The NSW Government has announced that rural and regional events held from January to June next year can apply for grants under round one of next year’s 2018 Incubator Event Fund.
Member for Albury Greg Aplin said the fund, managed by the state’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, offers annual grants of up to $20,000 to new and existing smaller-scale events.
‘‘Whether organisers are after assistance for marketing, public relations, venue hire or attendee research, the 2017/18 Incubator Event Fund provides those staging an event, for its first or second time, with a platform to help attract more visitors to destinations in rural and regional NSW,’’ he said.
Applications for round one are open until Sunday, October 1. Round two, for July to December 2018 events, open in February. Go to www.destinationnsw.com.au/rfep for more..
