National Business Events Program

Express your interest
Melbourne Convention Bureau’s National Business Events Program is designed to give a helping hand to domestic business event organisers in holding their events in Melbourne.
With a focus on domestic association conferences, exhibitions or tradeshows, workshops and seminars, as well as corporate meetings and incentive group events with a business event program, funding will be available to offset actual costs for hosting their events in Victoria.
The grants can be used to fund venue hire, accommodation, transport and other event costs with 50 per cent payable before the event commences to support upfront expenses.
*Applications are now closed, however MCB will advise if additional rounds of funding become available. If you are interested in registering your interest for future rounds click the button below.
