The aim of Tourism NI’s National Tourism Events Sponsorship Scheme is to support the delivery of its Events Strategic Vision to 2020. Paramount to this is the growth of visitor numbers and visitor spend.
The scheme offers financial assistance to support events which showcase Northern Ireland's regions and destinations, enhancing their visitors' experience. It is designed to act as a catalyst and motivator for the events industry. Applications must be of at least national significance in order to maximise the value of support from Tourism NI.
Events should have an overall minimum expenditure of £50,000 (not including monies from Tourism NI). Event sponsorship of up to £30,000 is available.
Applications are open to legally constituted organisations or individuals in Northern Ireland.
For events taking place between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020, the call for applications closes at 12 noon on 14 January 2019.
