ACT Events Policy – Discussion Paper

“The ACT Government is committed to building and nurturing Canberra’s events calendar through event delivery, event funding, event attraction and ongoing event development.

This discussion paper seeks to underpin the development of an ACT Events Policy – a policy that will serve as a blueprint for enhancing Canberra’s events calendar and for maximising the associated economic, social and cultural benefits for the Canberra region.

The paper specifically seeks community views on a set of guiding principles for an ACT Events Policy, along with proposed supporting actions designed to help realise the full potential of Canberra’s events sector. This includes events managed and delivered by the ACT Government, along with those events operated or owned by community groups, commercial event organisers and associations, but does not include business meetings or conventions.”

The Council of ACT Motor Clubs is preparing a submission on behalf of all clubs. Clubs are encouraged to contribute to this process – either provide comments to Council or an individual submission.
