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.
