Grants Update – Business Events Grants Program

Does your business participate in exhibitions, conferences, or conventions to promote your product?

If so, you may be interested in a new government grant which opened on 4th January 2021.

The Commonwealth Government’s Business Events Grants Program provides delegates with financial support to attend such events, where their attendance promotes domestic market diversification and supports Australia’s regional economy.

The Business Events Grant Program funding will cover up to 50% of eligible expenditure incurred in participating at an approved event.  Eligible expenditure includes registration costs, sponsorship, travel & accommodation and the costs of exhibiting at the event.  Please note that the grants are only available to Australian companies who incur a minimum of $20,000 in eligible expenditure.

Details on the Grant and the application process can be found by following this link. The application involves an online process, a sample of which can be viewed here – SAMPLE.

Note the deadline for application is 30 March 2021 or when funds run out, whichever comes first.
