Major events funding grant open now

Major events funding grant open now

If you're looking to establish a Major Event on the Coromandel you could be eligible for money from our Major Events Sponsorship funding.

Two application rounds are planned for the 2014-15 financial year in June and September.

The first round of funding will target the upcoming Spring /Summer events window and opened Monday 26 May, while the second round of funding should be open for applications in September, to target the Autumn/Winter 2015 events window.

Applications are to be assessed using the following criteria (from the events strategy):

• The event is unique to the Coromandel

• The event will garner strong national and regional media profile

• The event will attract holiday-home owners back to the Coromandel

• The event will attract domestic tourists (and internationals if they are already in NZ)

• Preference is given to shoulder-season events (off-peak)

• The event will attract strong support from our RTO and the private sector

• The event has the potential to grow to become an icon event

An annual event is preferred - if it is a 'one-off' event, it must have a track record of success in other places.

Beneficiaries of the 2013/2014 Major Events Funding are Illume Coromandel Town Winter Festival of Light ($50,000), the Thames Mindsport Festival ($12,500) and the Tairua Wet and Wild Jetski Event ($2,500).

Decisions will be made in July 2014 for the first round of funding applications.

More information and an application form can be found on www.tcdc.govt.nz
