Major event sponsorship fund
The Major Event Sponsorship fund will attract and support events to drive visitation and provide tourism, trade and investment opportunities for Port Stephens.
Events allow a community to come alive. They provide the opportunity for a destination to showcase its tourism experience, increase economic growth and create a dynamic and vibrant place.
The Major Event Sponsorship Fund will both attract and support events that create vibrant public spaces, promote community participation and connections, improve the visitor experience and grow the Port Stephens economy.
The program is specifically designed to attract participants from outside the Port Stephens local government area, increase overnight visitor spend and smooth season tourism fluctuations.
Applications are open year-round.
Funding amount will be negotiated with each applicant.
