Applications process, investment levels and list of recipients.

The Major Events Development Fund aims to to attract, retain, grow and enhance major events.

The government invests in major events that generate significant immediate and long-term benefits and align with wider government objectives through leverage and legacy opportunities.

The fund’s annual appropriation is currently $10m, much of which is committed several years in advance. The fund is not intended as a source of on-going, year-on-year funding for events. It is a development programme for events which meet the Major Events Development Fund criteria.
