$50 million for Business Events Grants program

Wednesday 16, Sep 2020

The Australian Government recently announced it would provide $50 million to create the Business Events Grants program. This assistance is part of the $1 billion Relief and Recovery Fund which is providing assistance to sectors, regions and communities disproportionately affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19.

This initiative will support business event organisers by providing grants to meet up to 50 per cent of costs incurred in holding a pre-approved  business event in Australia in 2021. 

It will empower the business events sector which has seen a near 100 per cent loss of revenue, and also the broader business community by stimulating economic activity.
