Queensland Events to support local tourism recovery
Queensland Events support local tourism recovery
23 events held across Queensland from January to May 2022 will receive $581,500 in funding to support the local tourism sector.
Queensland Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said Round 19 of the Queensland Destination Events Program (QDEP) would support the events to attract visitors to Queensland’s tourist destinations, supporting jobs and the recovery of local tourism economies.
Minister Hinchliffe noted “funded events from the Gold Coast to Bundaberg and the Far North in 2022 will be promoted on the State’s It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar for maximum exposure here and interstate as traveller confidence and COVID-19 vaccinations grow.”
Five of the destination events for the first half of 2022 were receiving funding for the first time and include Moreton Bay Multisport Festival, Rockynats Car Festival, The Surf City Cup - Australasian Series football tournament, Cooly Classic Ocean Swim and the Junior State Cup North touch football event.
This round of Queensland Destination Events is anticipated to generate more than $30 million for the State’s visitor economy and pandemic recovery.
Successful QDEP Round 19 events include:
Applications for QDEP Round 20, for events up to May 2023, are already open and close on 6th October 2021.
