Major events are important catalysts for economic development, social inclusion and community well-being. The economic impact of major events can be broad and far-reaching.
For this reason, Council has established a Major Events Advisory Panel (MEAP) to provide advice and funding recommendations regarding the development of major events in the Gladstone Region. MEAP aims to grow the number of major events in the region, maximise the economic and tourism impact of such events and provide a coherent framework for the attraction and support of major events to the area.
MEAP applications have three rounds of funding each year, with round one closing on February 28, round two closing on June 30 and round 3 closing on October 31.
