Access to Federal Grant funding still available for APP2021

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia has announced today that grant support is still available for Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Trade Exhibition (APP2021) exhibitors and attendees. APP takes place at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre from 20-23 May 2021.

The Business Events Grants Program, available through Austrade, is part of a $50M initiative launched by the Federal Government to support business meetings and conventions across Australia to support post-COVID economic recovery. To be eligible for the funding, delegates or exhibitors must spend a minimum of $20K to get as much as 50% returned.

APP2021 Conference Convenor, Kos Sclavos AM, again thanked the Federal Government for the grant and reminded attendees of the need to act soon to access the money.

“The $50 million Business Events Grants Program is a great initiative by the Federal Government to encourage more delegates and exhibitors to attend conferences in 2021,” said Mr Sclavos.

“APP2021 is the largest pharmacy trade expo in Australia, and the grant funding provides the opportunity for even more businesses in our industry to take part. Without events such as APP2021, businesses would not have the opportunity to meet with existing and new target audiences in this important, face to face setting.”

“As the funding comes from a national pool, it’s a first in, best-dressed scenario. Even though the application deadline is 30 March, we encourage anyone interested to apply as soon as possible.”

Mr Sclavos also advised that 90% of the trade exhibition is sold out and potential exhibitors should book as soon as possible.

APP2021 is The Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s annual national conference and the largest pharmacy conference and trade show in Australia. This COVID Safe Event offers attendees a four-day educational program, exciting social activities and a trade exhibition showcasing the latest products, services and industry information.

For further information on the grant funding go to Attendees can view the APP2021 program, registration details, the COVID Safe Event Plan and grant information at The Extended Super Early Bird closes next Monday 22 February.
