Major Events Funding provides funding for major events on a case-by-case basis.

Tourism WA assesses proposed events to determine whether it meets the funding criteria.

The funding criteria include, but are not limited to:

  • economic impact – the anticipated number of interstate and international participants, visitors, support teams and others, the length of their stay and estimated expenditure
  • media impact – the media profile the event can raise for WA as a tourist destination
  • event Frequency – regularly staged events will receive more favourable consideration
  • private sector investment – the greater the funding by the private sector, the more favourable the assessment

Applications must be submitted 12 months before the date of the event.
