The City of Perth Council has approved a revised budget of $3 million for the City of Perth’s Major Events and Festivals Sponsorship Program for 2022/23.
Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas said a key focus was to support ‘uniquely Perth’ events that build on and communicate Perth’s brand and cultural identity.
“Our culture, environment, location and lifestyle make us stunningly unique, and we are ready to take things to the next level. Our legend is growing. We are loud, we are exciting, and we are ready to share Perth with the rest of the world,” he said.
The City's Major Events and Festivals Sponsorship guidelines will be amended to enable the maximum contribution of sponsorship provided by the City of Perth is up to 60 per cent of the total event budget.
The City of Perth will also play a role in the delivery of events at pivotal moments throughout the year, responding to community needs and gaps in the calendar through the annual Signature Events Plan.
