CEDA supports and works with organisers of major events and conferences in the region, and manages the Major Events Fund.
If you’re organising an event that will attract visitors from outside the region, you could be eligible for support from the Major Events Fund. As a first step, take a look at our checklist of information we require from event organisers, then discover more information here. Applications for funding in 2018 are open between March 1st and May 31st.
CEDA works alongside Palmerston North City Council, Districts councils and other organisations like Sport Manawatu to support the region’s event scene.
Palmerston North City Council and Manawatu District Council work with community events that attract predominantly Manawatu locals to their activities, such as Christmas Parades, Community Concerts and Food Truck Markets. Sport Manawatu supports operational costs for national sport events hosted in the region through the provision of grants.
