Comms Connect Melbourne listed as an approved event for the federal government’s $50 million Business Events Grant program.
This means by exhibiting at or sponsoring the 2021 event (20-21 October), businesses are eligible to apply for upfront grants to cover up to 50% of the costs associated with exhibiting.
There is a minimum $20,000 expenditure, however, businesses can include a range of expenses such as tickets to the ARCIA Industry Gala Dinner, freight and logistics, flights and accommodation. Businesses can also combine the exhibition costs of more than one approved event to assist in reaching the minimum spend in calendar year 2021.
