Creating events in CBR. Have your say

Canberrans are encouraged to join the discussion about how we can ensure our city stages even better events. We want your ideas, your suggestions and your creativity on how to make Canberra’s culture more dynamic and vibrant.

An ACT Events Policy Discussion paper has now been released, providing the community and key stakeholders with an opportunity to have a say and help realise the full potential of Canberra’s events sector.

From world-class exhibitions, to major sporting contests and a unique blend of innovative festivals and community events, Canberra’s event scene has continued to evolve and flourish. There is now potential to further establish Canberra’s reputation as a world-class events destination.

We want your views on the guiding principles for an ACT Events Policy and the supporting actions that are set out in the Discussion Paper. In addition, a series of questions are posed for further consideration and as a means of promoting positive and forward-thinking conversations with industry stakeholders and the community.

Public consultation on the Events Policy Discussion Paper closes on Monday 5 September 2016.
