Western Australia touts Business Events Grants Program
In this article—published by Meetings & Conventions Asia on March 9, 2021—Business Events Perth urges more event owners to take advantage of the AU$50 million (C$48.8 million) Business Events Grants Program.
The program was created last November to help Australians offset the cost of attending domestic conferences and exhibitions. Pre-approved business events, including conventions, incentives and exhibitions, are eligible for upfront grants that cover up to 50% of planning costs (between AU$10,000 and $250,000).
“By reducing the cost for buyers and sellers to meet, connect and collaborate at a business event, this program is not just aiding in the recovery of the events sector, it’s also stimulating increased activity in the business events supply chain,” said Business Events Perth chief executive, Gareth Martin.
