Tourism and Major event sponsorship request

Bendigo Spirits Basketball Game at Stadium

The Tourism and Major Events unit strives to stimulate the development of events that deliver social and economic benefits for the Bendigo region. This is in the high yield areas of arts and culture, sport and leisure, food and wine, agriculture, business events and car club shows. We also aim to promote Bendigo outside the region to encourage visitation.

One of the ways in which we support this is to improve and develop  major hallmark and developing events. To be considered for possible support please read the Events support information before completing the below form. Once you have read these two categories please indicate yes to each question to proceed with application. You may wish to view Tourism co-op marketing opportunities-contact us for details.
