Tourism NI opens new funding programme today
Pictured at the Belfast roadshow outside Riddel Hall to launch the scheme are Michelle Jameson, Tourism NI, Events Officer, and Aine Kearney, Tourism NI, Director of Business Support and Events, with Alison Gordon, Open House Festival, Bangor.
The latest in a series of information roadshows promoting a new Tourism NI funding programme at Riddel Hall, Stranmillis was designed to ‘shout’ about the Tourism Event Funding Programme 2016/17, which opens today, with an aim to invite the local tourism industry to apply.
The funding programme will open for tourism events taking place between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017.
Tourism NI has structured the new programme to include an International Tourism Events Fund, a National Tourism Events Sponsorship Scheme and a Year of Food and Drink Tourism Events Scheme.
Roadshows in advance of the opening of the funding programme took place last week at venues in Enniskillen, Armagh, Derry~Londonderry, Belfast and Bushmills.
