About the fund

The £6 million fund was being delivered by VisitScotland on behalf of the Scottish Government and was developed in consultation with the Event Industry Advisory Group.

The fund was open to event businesses whose primary role as organisers, suppliers, contractors and venues is critical to the survival of the events sector in Scotland, and upon whom the wider events industry and supply chain are most reliant for their own business and operations.

Funding was prioritised towards those businesses that could evidence and demonstrate that they play a pivotal role across the events industry in Scotland and are in financial difficulty as a direct result of COVID-19.

Applicants could apply for grants from £25,000 up to a maximum £150,000.
