Event Partnerships Program

Experience Gold Coast (EGC) welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with event organisers to support an inspiring and diverse portfolio of events for our city.

EGC’s Event Partnerships Program offers funding for major events that attract national and international visitation and contribute to positioning the Gold Coast as one of the most sought-after destinations to present an event, attend an event and participate in an event – the ultimate events destination.

The Event Partnerships Program is open for applications year-round for events to be held no earlier than nine (9) months after the application is submitted to allow for adequate lead time.

Event owners seeking an investment of $100,000 (ex GST) or more are strongly encouraged to apply 12 months in advance of the event.

Application process

Prior to submitting an application, all event organisers are required to read the Event Partnerships Program Funding Guidelines below:
