Sydney Business Events Fund is Now Open for Applications

BESydney is now encouraging business event organisers to head to meetinsydney.com.au to apply for funding support from the NSW Government’s Kickstart 2021 Sydney Business Events Fund.

Event planners have until 31 May 2021 to apply for a cash incentive of up to $90,000 in matched funding from the NSW Government for a new business event taking place in Greater Sydney, Newcastle or Wollongong between now and 31 December 2021.

Designed to provide urgent financial support for business events venues that have been hard hit by the continuing border closures and social distancing restrictions due to COVID-19, the funding is offered to event organisers to offset venue costs including venue hire and in-house catering and audio visual.

BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith said: “Business events and the venues that support them are vital not only to the NSW tourism industry, but the economy as a whole. This funding will help keep venues open and create job opportunities for tourism and hospitality workers, and associated businesses.”
