Annual Events Pitching Competition!

Western cape government

Are you an Event Organiser hosting events in the Western Cape? Does your event create positive Social, Economic and Environmental impacts?


The Events Incubation Conference is an annual event bringing together event specialists from around the world to share and learn from each other on a one-on-one basis.

Event organisers, sponsors, the public sector, service providers and suppliers are just some of the conference participants who have attended.

Annually the Western Cape plays host to numerous events ranging from sport, leisure, business, culinary and lifestyle, amongst others.

The positive impacts these events bring to the Province have been recognised and the Integrated Events Strategy identifies key projects to grow the sector over the next 15 years.  

As part of this, the Western Cape Government looks to support prospective public events in the Province by inviting event organisers to submit proposals to stand in line to win R 50 000.00 towards hosting their event.

The competition calls for creative and exciting ideas which could stimulate the growth of the event and in turn increase positive socio-economic and environmental impacts within the host town. 

By tapping into our very own event expertise in the Western Cape, we aim to capacitate emerging event organisers to improve the quality of events we offer as a destination.

To qualify, entrants must reside in the Western Cape and have:

  • A valid ID document if the entrant is a South African citizen.
  • (non-SA citizens should supply) proof of permanent residence and proof that you are permitted to run a business/work in South Africa.
  • A valid business/NPO registration number.
  • A valid tax clearance certificate.
  • Up to date financial statements or management accounts and a business bank account.
  • A sound financial performance over the last year.
  • Leadership and management processes in place.
  • The event has to take place within the Western Cape.
  • The event should be at least a year old.
  • Complete and submit the consent form with the proposal.
  • Note: Only the finalists will be requested to submit proof of the documents. These documents are NOT required to be submitted with your proposal (entry).
