Major event sponsorship fund
Events help a community to come alive. They provide the opportunity for a destination to showcase its tourism experience, increase economic growth, create a dynamic and vibrant place, and build a loyal following of visitors.
Events are well recognised as drivers of visitation and visitor spend – they provide tourism, trade and investment opportunities for Port Stephens. Events can be a driver of infrastructure development through increasing demand. They also provide an opportunity for our Council to reinforce our brand, stimulate the economy and even out seasonal fluctuations.
The Major Event Sponsorship fund will both attract and support events that create economic benefit and align with the vision and values of our Council.
Applications accepted year-round from 28 August 2023.
Funding amount will be negotiated with each applicant.
