$2 million Immediate Resilience Plan: business events support fund incentive doubles the attraction
The Territory Government has doubled its incentive to secure more business events for the Northern Territory as part of the $2 million Immediate Tourism Resilience Plan to support the tourism industry and local jobs.
Business events planners or organisations, at the consideration or bidding stage, can apply for financial assistance of $200 per delegate for eligible applications received by 31 May 2020 for business events staged by 30 June 2021.
To date, the Turbocharging Tourism Business Events Support Fund has secured 56 business events to 2022. It is anticipated 17 300 delegates will generate an estimated $40.44 million delegate expenditure - a direct boost to our economy meaning more local jobs.
