Events Sponsorship

The Event Sponsorship Program has been designed to provide funding for events that :
  • Provide positive promotional exposure for Newcastle
  • Provide economic benefit through tourist visitation      
  • Enhance the City’s image and profile as a visitor destination
  • Capitalise on the City’s assets and Newcastle as an event city.
Applications for the 2017-18 Event Sponsorship Program closed on Monday 1 May 2017. A panel will convene in June to assess the submissions.  Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified.

Funds will be available from 1 July 2017 and the event must be completed by 30 June 2018.
