Business Events Attraction Fund

The Tasmanian Business Events Attraction Fund (BEAF) allows Business Events Tasmania to offer financial support at the critical bidding stage, to help secure national and international conferences to the state.

The Tasmanian Government and Business Events Tasmania are dedicated to supporting business events that leave long lasting benefits to Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Business Events Attraction Fund (BEAF) allows Business Events Tasmania to offer financial support at the critical bidding stage, to help secure national and international conferences to the state.

To be considered for funding, your event must:

  • not yet be confirmed to take place in Tasmania
  • be considered an ‘eligible business event’. This includes conferences, conventions, symposia, congresses, incentive group events, marketing events, seminars, training courses, trade-exhibitions, product launches, company general meetings or corporate retreats.
  • must include at least one (1) night stay in Tasmania and attract a minimum 50 visiting delegates (i.e interstate and/or international) for events within the Greater Hobart area , or 20 visiting delegates (i.e interstate and/or international) outside the Greater Hobart area.

An event’s suitability for support will be assessed against a number of criteria, that includes but is not limited to; the business event’s ability to drive visitation to the state, the extent to which the business event supports regional yield and dispersal, how the business event relates to a key Tasmanian trade or business sector and the business event’s potential to leave a legacy in the state.
