The City of Hobart sponsorship program offers support to eligible events, festivals and activities in return for significant promotional benefits.
This support can be cash, in-kind or a combination of both, in exchange for mutually beneficial outcomes for the city.
For the purpose of the program, a sponsorship application must be for:
A large scale commercial event, festival or activity (including sporting) that is high profile and as a result has the potential for significant promotional leverage (i.e. interstate media/branding opportunities) and significant economic benefit, improve visitation and provide enrichment to the community. As a result, most sponsorship applications will be initiated from well-established proven events.
The Sponsorship Grant Guidelines(PDF, 1MB) contain information regarding eligibility, the assessment criteria and application process.
