event funding programs & applications

Events are an important component of Scottsdale’s overall image, “its product”, and its lifestyle. The City and its residents often benefit from events held in Scottsdale through increased cultural opportunities, recreational activities, increased economic activity, enhanced community status, and additional marketing exposure. The tourism department manages multiple programs that help to support events throughout the City.

 

Event Development Funding

Major events are an important component of Scottsdale’s overall image and its "product". Events are also used as tools for marketing programs that are intended to increase national and international visibility for Scottsdale as a desirable tourist destination to our target upscale hotel and resort visitors.

Event Development Funding Guidelines

 

Event Support Funding

Tourism driven events are an important part of the Scottsdale tourism “product”, and as such, are used to market the destination and generate incremental Scottsdale room nights associated with the event.
