In response to recent challenges, Business Events Geelong in partnership with Regional Development Victoria and Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism, have established a joint monetary incentive program to stimulate business events in the Barwon South West regions post COVID-19.

The $200k program, backed by the Victorian State Government’s Regional Recovery Support Fund, aims to incentivise those looking to hold business events in the Barwon South West region by partially covering the cost per delegate up to the amount of $50.

Eligible event managers, PCOs, EAs and PAs must request funds to cover actual business event costs, including but not limited to accommodation, venue hire, transport and other event costs.

Available only to new bookings, those interested in accessing the funds must secure their event in one of the Barwon South West municipalities by 30 June 2022 with the business event to be held by 31 December 2023.

More than half of the $200k has already been allocated, but there’s still time to claim a slice of the funding. Click here for more information.
