Major event sponsorship

The application window for 2017/18 major events sponsorship is now closed.

As New Zealand’s international city, Auckland is committed to major events as a means to drive economic growth and make Auckland a more desirable place to live, visit, work, study and invest.

The Auckland Major Events Sponsorship Fund is an annual opportunity to apply for major events sponsorship from Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development (ATEED) – on behalf of Auckland Council. This is for major events which will contribute to the outcomes sought by Auckland’s Major Events Strategy.

ATEED is now evaluating the applications received against criteria specified in Auckland’s Major Events Strategy.

Sponsorship decisions will be communicated to applicants and announced publicly from January 2017.

See the Auckland Major Events Strategy for more information.
