VisitBritain has launched a £100,000 Domestic Support Fund designed to kick-start the recovery of the UK business events industry. Applications are now open.
The Fund is available for not-for-profit organisations and charities hosting meetings, conferences and events in the UK from 21 June to 17 December 2021. Events from 100 to 500 delegates taking place in the UK are eligible to apply, with the fund opening for bids from 9 June 2021. The financial support available is based on the number of delegates attending with up to £15,000 available for each event.
The announcement of the Domestic Fund follows the reopening of the VisitBritain’s Business Events Growth Programme, which supports bids in attracting international events as well as the growth of events already secured.
