Federal grants available for Workplace Health & Safety Show exhibitors


Exhibitors at upcoming trade shows may be eligible to receive up to $250,000 funding via the government’s Business Events grant opportunity.

The Business Events program provides delegates – including buyers and sellers – with financial support to attend and participate at exhibitions, conferences and conventions. The initiative is intended to instil confidence back into the business events sector and encourage businesses to return to the event forum.

Any company, partnership or sole trader is eligible to seek a grant, and looking to exhibit at one of the government’s approved events.

We encourage you to learn more which will give you an overview of eligibility. The closing date to apply is 30 March 2021, 5.00pm AEDT so please act fast.

The Workplace Health & Safety Show Sydney 2021 is an Approved Business Event. If you exhibit at this event you may be eligible to apply for the grant, claiming up to 50 per cent of the cost of exhibiting from the Australian Government.

Headed by Marie Kinsella, CEO International Exhibition & Conference Group, the Workplace Health and Safety Show encompasses a free program of events and opportunities to meet new suppliers, update your knowledge, join discussions, and forge connections.

This year’s event will be held at the Sydney Showground in Homebush on September 7 and 8.

As part of the WHSS virtual series there will be an event focusing on mental health taking place on Thursday April 21.

It will feature a Virtual Exhibitor Marketplace where exhibitors will be online to launch new products, discuss the latest innovations in workplace safety, meet one-on-one in face to face online chats, collaborate to determine your ongoing needs, organise a follow-up meeting if required – all in one place – drop in and out of the various stands and plan what your ongoing needs are for 2021 and beyond.

With a thirst for business and consumers to meet in-person once again, to network, learn and share expertise, we hope the grant will give you a chance to showcase your company bigger and better!

Contact the WHSS team at to receive a copy of the floor plan and event prospectus for the Workplace Health & Safety Show Sydney.

With an appetite from vendors to take part, premium locations will be secured quickly.
