AWRE exhibitors eligible to cover costs as part of $50M Australian Business Events Grants Program

Jan 5, 2021 Event News

We are excited to announce that AWRE has been listed on the Schedule of Approved Events on the Austrade program website as part of the Australian Business Events Grants Program with applications now open to all AWRE exhibitors. 

AWRE exhibitors are now eligible to apply for upfront grants, under the Australian Business Events Grants Program. You are encouraged to attend approved business events such as AWRE within Australia through grants to help cover up to 50% of the costs associated with exhibiting such as the hire of exhibition spaces, the design and manufacture of displays, travel and accommodation. 

Should AWRE 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.  

“With many international trade shows out of reach for the time being, making it less expensive and easier for regional businesses to attend events in Australia will also present new opportunities to connect with and secure new customers,” the Deputy Prime Minister said. 

”We are delighted that AWRE has been listed on the Schedule of Approved Events, it underlines the significance this event has in the calendar for the waste and recycling,” David Longman, MD, Diversified Communications said

Live events are hugely important to the economy and the waste and recycling community, to come together, trade, network and hear from industry thought leaders. We welcome the Business Events Grant Program, as a mechanism whereby our customers can apply to cover up to half their costs in participating at AWRE. We encourage our customers to undertake the application process as soon as they can, to give themselves the best chance of receiving funding.”  

 Funding will only be provided for Exhibitors and business delegates attending events such as AWRE or more listed on the Schedule such as Integrate, Security Expo, Fine Food Australia, Naturally Good and foodpro.

The Business Events Grants program is now open and will close on 30 March 2021. For further grant details, click here.
