This category is suitable for events held in Brandon for a minimum of five (5) consecutive years that generate a minimum of 1,500 room nights that are subject to the Accommodation Tax (campground stays and Airbnb do not qualify as room nights). Events that alternate between Brandon and another location on an annual basis are not eligible for funding.
In addition to the general guidelines found here (General Guidelines), the following apply to Annual Events of Significant Economic Impact funding applications.
The event must generate a minimum of 1,500 room nights (total for the duration of the event) that are subject to Accommodation Tax (eligible room nights).
The event must have been held in Brandon annually for a minimum of 5 consecutive years or have signed a hosting agreement whereby the years in which the event has been held in Brandon combined with the duration of the hosting / venue agreement total a minimum of 5 consecutive years. Annual events that alternate annually between Brandon and other centres are not eligible.
Eligible events will receive an annual yearly grant for as long as the event continues to be held annually in Brandon with no break in consecutive years and provided their current room nights continue to meet the established minimum for eligibility.
The event must initially complete the supplied application form and provide validated room nights for the event (to serve as benchmark). Annual grant payments are based upon room nights realized in the previous year. When an event does not have an established prior year room night count verified by City of Brandon staff, grant amounts will be determined by the current years verified room count.
If an eligible event drops beneath the minimum room night count, they will not be eligible for funding in the following year and must start the application process over again for subsequent years.
Once the City of Brandon approves an event as being eligible for funding as an Annual Event of Significant Economic Impact, to receive funding in future years, the applicant must provide annual room nights generated on the event final report form. Room nights are then verified by City of Brandon staff. The annual grant will be paid out at the conclusion of the event based on the previous years realized room nights when they are known or for new events once the room nights have been verified by City staff.
There will be no advance payment issued for events eligible for funding under the Annual Event of Significant Economic Impact funding category.
In the event an Annual Event of Significant Economic Impact is approved for funding under another Accommodation Tax grant funding category, the event shall not be eligible for funding in that particular year under the Annual Event of Significant Impact category.
Event organizers are required to notify Economic Development Brandon of the event dates a minimum of 60 days prior to the event each year.
The annual grant is based on $7 per City of Brandon verified room night.
