Business Events Grants

Planning to exhibit or sponsor at upcoming Australian trade fairs, exhibitions or conferences?

Your business could receive an upfront grant of between $5,000 to $250,000 through the Federal Government's Business Events Grants program.


Here's a short summary:

  • Eligible businesses will receive funding based on planned participation at approved business events in Australia up to 31 March 2022.
  • The grant is 50% of your planned expenses - remaining 50% to be paid from your own funds (not from other grants).
  • Grants between $5,000 and $250,000
  • $50 million in funding


The timeline to apply is short so don't delay - applications will close once funding is exhausted.
