Funding assistance will be in the form of a sponsorship grant. The grant amount will be determined by the number of paid accommodation room nights in Prince George that result directly from the conference, convention, or trade show.
The following funding guidelines will apply (the City reserves the right to adjust allocations where necessary):
Up to $500 per event for 50 to 100 total paid accommodation room nights.
Up to $2,500 per event for 101 to 300 total paid accommodation room nights.
Up to $5,000 per event for 301 to 500 total paid accommodation room nights.
Up to $7,500 per event for 501 or more total paid accommodation room nights.
If a grant application is approved, successful recipients will receive 50 per cent of the funding before the event. The exact amount of the remaining funding will be determined after the event is complete and the total number of paid accommodation nights used by delegates is confirmed by event organizers. A final report that includes documentation to support the number of paid accommodation nights will be required within 60 days after the event.
Event organizers are responsible for collecting names and addresses of event participants as well as participant consent to share their personal information with the City of Prince George. The City reserves the right to access delegate registration information for the purpose of verifying the total number of paid accommodation nights used by event participants.
