Event fund­ing

The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

FUND­ING is now avail­able for ru­ral and re­gional events held from Jan­uary to June next year un­der round one of next year’s 2018 in­cu­ba­tor event fund.

Mem­ber for Murray Adrian Pic­coli said the fund, man­aged by Des­ti­na­tion NSW, of­fered an­nual grants of up to $20,000 to new and ex­ist­ing smaller-scale events.

‘‘Host­ing events in this re­gion not only de­liv­ers im­por­tant eco­nomic and com­mu­nity ben­e­fits . . . but helps to put our re­gion on the map,’’ Mr Pic­coli said.

‘‘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 this re­gion.

‘‘We know re­gional events play an im­por­tant role in grow­ing our lo­cal econ­omy, and I en­cour­age event or­gan­is­ers to learn more about this won­der­ful NSW Gov­ern­ment op­por­tu­nity which is now on of­fer.’’

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open un­til Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1 with round two set to open in Fe­bru­ary next year for events held in July to De­cem­ber 2018.
