The $20 million Regional Events Fund 2016-17 to 2019-20 is designed to support the attraction, development, marketing and growth of events in regional Victoria in order to:
- increase economic benefits by driving visitation from outside of the region and the State and extending length of stay and yield;
- showcase Victoria’s key regional tourism strengths and build Victoria’s reputation as an events destination; and
- develop a sustainable calendar of regional events.
This new funding stream supports the securing of new events as well as the enhancement of existing events, so provides a range of great funding opportunities for regional events.
