QuoteVictoria's events industry is calling for immediate financial aid after a survey of its members by the Save Victorian Events association found that their income had dropped by 81 per cent between April 2020 and August 2021 (when compared to a normal pre-COVID year) and by 66 per cent between September and December 2021.Respondents estimated income would decline by 68 per cent between January and March 2022, and 58 per cent between April and June this year.The association is calling for the reintroduction for the jointly federal and state funded Business Costs Assistance Program (Business CAP) grants to give immediate support."This is because we know these grants work and this can be done at the push of a button," said co-founder Simon Thewlis."Quite specifically, this is to help them to continue to pay staff, rent, equipment leases, etc... until many events can really start to happen again.
