Victoria has a portfolio of well-known hallmark international events, major events, community events, business events and social events that make up the events sector. While they provide significant cultural, economic and capacity building benefits to their host communities, events also play a major role in driving visitation to Melbourne and Victoria, Major events and business events alone generate $5.9 billion for the Victorian economy annually.
The sector also supports other businesses across the state that are the beneficiaries of the positive economic contribution that events deliver for Victoria.
