DENVER (KDVR) – If you want to get married in Colorado in the next two years, the state can help you pay for part of your wedding.
A new program aimed at helping state industry event meetings recover will make this possible.
The Meeting and Event Incentive Program offers pre-approved applicants a 10% discount between $ 3,500 and $ 100,000 on eligible expenses for hosting meetings and events.
Examples of eligible events include: business meetings, conferences, conventions, trade shows, exhibitions, festivals, and even weddings.
Elizabeth O’Rear, director of grants and funding for the Colorado Bureau of Tourism, said: “Our hope is perhaps we will encourage some of those who have not yet booked their wedding to go ahead and book that wedding.” is an incentive program, we hope to grow the number of events. So don’t necessarily support events that are already taking place, but encourage booking new events. “
Anyone wishing to apply for financial aid must have their wedding or event planned on or after April 6, 2021, when the bill was initially introduced.
The program runs from July 1 to December 31, 2022.
