Exhibitors at AVALON 2021 – the Australian International Airshow – can now apply for a new Grants Program introduced by the Federal Government to cover some of your costs of participation.

AVALON 2021 has been placed on the Schedule of Approved Business Events for the new Australian Government Business Events Grants Program. Organisations planning to exhibit may be eligible to apply for a grant from the Government to cover up to 50% of the costs of participation at AVALON 2021.

The AVALON Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition is one of the Indo-Asia-Pacific’s most prestigious events and the most comprehensive aviation, aerospace and defence exposition in the Southern Hemisphere. Set to take place from 23-28 November at Avalon Airport in Geelong, Victoria, AVALON 2021 will be a cornerstone event in a year marking the Centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF).

The eligible costs, towards which exhibitors may be able to apply for a grant, include:

  • Space hire.
  • Design and manufacture.
  • Travel or accommodation.

The full list of eligible expenditure is detailed in the grant opportunity documentation issued by the Australian Government.

The Business Events Grants program will open at midday (AEDST) on 4 January 2021 and will close on 30 March 2021 or, possibly, earlier. For further details, visit:
