Event Sponsorship Programme
Recognising the positive economic and social benefits events and tourism has on the region, the City has developed an Event Sponsorship Programme that aims to assist in the funding and attraction of year-round events to the region, bridging the existing events shoulder season and further advancing the region as the Events Capital WA.
Every proposal for an event seeking sponsorship from the City of Busselton is required to complete an Event Sponsorship Application. This format has been designed to ensure:
- Planning for every event is rigorous, transparent and comprehensive;
- Annual events use the Event Sponsorship Application as a planning tool to continually improve the quality of the event; and
- The City’s Marketing and Events Reference Group can assess each proposal fairly and equitably.
The Event Sponsorship Program opens twice a year for applications, in March and September. Application forms, information & guidelines are available from the City Office.
Prospective applicants are welcome to contact Peta Tuck, Events Coordinator on 9781 0302 to discuss their applications prior to submission.
