Event Sector Support

Events Tasmania continues to build the capacity of events through its Event Sector Support program. This helps deliver the Tasmanian Government Events Strategy 2015-2020 through Events Tasmania's aims to attract people to Tasmania, moving Tasmanians around the state and getting people talking about Tasmania.


Events Tasmania sponsors the Event Management Library at the Australian Centre of Event Management (ACEM) at the University of Technology Sydney, providing a rich information resource to the events sector. Resources include conference papers, reports, case studies, checklists, guides, journal articles and other publications.

You can access the ACEM resources here.
