The City of Hobart will not be running a sponsorship program in 2020/21 due to budget restraints and the continued ongoing impacts of Covid-19.

Eligible applicants are, however, encouraged to complete a sponsorship Expression of Interest form. This ensures that you will be notified if future opportunities become available.

Eligible events

The City of Hobart has previously offered a sponsorship program for eligible events, festivals and activities in exchange for mutually beneficial outcomes for the city.

A sponsorship 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.

Interested applicants should refer to the Sponsorship Guidelines(PDF, 658KB).
