Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation: Festivals and Events Tourism Growth Program
- Posted by Lindsay Bowman on August 20th, 2012
The Festivals and Events Tourism Growth Program aims to increase tourism revenues and visitation in Alberta by investing in established festivals and events demonstrating potential for tourism growth.
Organizations will be selected through a competitive application process to receive funding of $25,000 to $40,000 each to hire a third-party consultant. The amount will be determined by the scope and location of the festival or event. The consultant will work with the organization and its stakeholders to evaluate the event, identify tourism growth opportunities, and develop a Festival/Event Tourism Growth Plan.
As result of the program, Alberta festivals and events with high tourism growth potential will commit to meeting targets, for the following year, to increase attendance by 10%, increase revenues by 10%, and enhance the quality and quantity of programming by 20%.
Application deadlines are:
- April 5, 2012
- September 21, 2012
- February 15, 2013
