Business Events Grants available for eligible BTS21 participants

Published: January 15, 2021

2021 Brisbane Truck Show exhibitors and delegates are now eligible to apply for Business Events Grants from the recently announced Federal Government program.

Schedule of Approved Business Events has been published on Austrade’s website and includes the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show and the Civil Construction Field Days. 

Eligible businesses are now able to apply for a grant to cover up to 50% of the costs of attending the Brisbane Truck Show as delegates or exhibitors.

The Business Events Grants program is open from 4 January 2021, closing on 30 March 2021.

The Business Grants Hub are administering the Program. Program guidelines are now available at business.gov.au. Applications will be submitted through the Business Grants Hub.

Funding applications

The Business Events Grants program will support Australian businesses by providing grants between $10,000 and $250,000.

Grant funding covers up to 50 per cent of costs incurred in participating at pre-approved business to business events as buyers or sellers during the 2021 calendar year.

Questions about grant applications, eligibility or the program guidelines should be directed to the Business Grants Hub by calling 13 28 46 or email business.events@industry.gov.au.

The initiative will not only empower the business events sector, but also the broader business community by stimulating high value, multi-day business-to-business (B2B) events.

Eligible costs could include space hire, design and manufacture, travel or accommodation. 

Should an event be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, then the non-refundable amount (as identified in the program guidelines) will be entirely met by the Australian Government.
