Event Funding

Events, tournaments and conferences may request funding for an event or one-off grant from the Economic Development and Visit Whanganui budgets.

The purpose of these funds is to:

  • provide seed funding for events in the early stages of the event's development
  • increase the number of visitors to Whanganui which gives an economic return to the district
  • generate on a national and international level positive publicity for Whanganui.

You can find out more about this funding and the requirements for applying by talking to the team at Whanganui & Partners. Call Paul Chaplow on 06 349 3119 or email paul.chaplow@whanganuiandpartners.nz
