Beef Australia is pleased to announce we have been listed on the Schedule of Approved Business Events on Austrade’s website.
The Business Events Grant program aims to support the event industry including the tourism sector to fund Australian businesses to participate as buyers or sellers at pre-approved business events including exhibitions, conferences and conventions from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021. It aims to ease the financial pressure for business event organisers and to incentivise Australian business to participate as buyers/sellers at pre-approved events.
Funding is to support the sustainability of events in government priority areas and to cover the cancellation costs that may occur to planned events due to COVID-19 outbreaks.
The objective of the program is to:
- support delegates that are buying or selling to participate in ‘business events’. Business events includes exhibitions, conferences, and conventions
- promote Australian businesses, including to a domestic audience
This means eligible businesses can apply for funding under the Business Events Grants Program to cover up to 50% of the costs of participating in Beef 2021.
Grants from $10,000 to $250,000 per entity are available. Applicants are able to apply for multiple events listed on the Schedule of Approved Business Events.
Grant applications close at 5pm (AEDST) on 30 March 2021 or earlier if funding is exhausted.
