Event Funding

Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC) collaborates with event organisers to support a vibrant festival and events culture for our city.

MEGC welcomes the opportunity to work with organisers of major events that attract national and international visitation and contribute to building the Gold Coast as a Global Events destination.

MEGC will consider and assess applications for event funding based on their alignment with the city’s brand and image, and provide clear and tangible benefits to the city, such as:

  • attracting significant out-of-region attendance, with event participants and attendees visiting the Gold Coast for the primary purpose of attending the event
  • generating significant spending in the region leading to positive economic outcomes
  • promoting the city’s image as a global destination to a wide audience (achieving national or international coverage).

To determine if your event may be eligible for support, please answer the following:
