VisitBritain has launched a 4 year Event Support Programme which offers advocacy and funding to grow and develop the UK’s international business events industry.
The programme is open to Destination Management Organisations (DMOs) or venues and event organisers who are collaborating with DMOs.
Organisations can also apply for non-financial support in the form of endorsement from advocates including government ministers, overseas diplomatic missions, UK Trade and Investment and other influencers.
Short term financial support for 2016/17 is open until 16 September, 2016.
Applications for non-financial support and potential future financial support can be received on an ongoing basis. Forward commitment of financial support for 2017/18 is open until 15 October/Hydref, 2016.
