Te Tauihu Regional Events Fund
In September 2020, the New Zealand Government announced a $50m Regional Events Fund to support the tourism and event sectors in response to Covid-19's impact on international tourism. The fund is intended to stimulate domestic tourism and travel between regions through the hosting of events with the aim of replacing some of the expenditure usually generated by international visitors.
$1.5m of the funding has been allocated to the Marlborough, Nelson and Tasman regions for the creation of the Te Tauihu Regional Events Fund to facilitate and fund events until 30 June 2025. This fund aims to stimulate the Te Tauihu economy by driving visitation through events that support and leverage local industry strengths. It will also focus on celebrating our community, building excellence in event management and minimising event waste.
The Te Tauihu Regional Events Fund for Marlborough events is now open and event organisers are invited to apply by submitting an online Expression of Interest via the link below.
Expressions of Interest will be reviewed by Council’s Regional Events Advisor and Destination Marlborough’s General Manager.
For more information on the Fund and its criteria please refer to our FAQ section.
