The Welsh Government’s major events unit has approached Conwy County Council to see if it could work to secure high-profile events for north Wales.
Major events which could include an international music concert and international cycling event can incur expensive hosting fees, so help from local authorities could support the events financially.
Conwy Council which already hosts an annual music has suggested the following hosting fees would apply for the events the WGMEU has proposed:
- International cycling event, 2019: £50,000
- International music concert, date to be confirmed: £100,000
- European cycling event, 2020: £45,000
- Men’s world sporting event, 2021: £100,000
The report does also acknowledge there could be concerns around “stretching resources”.
WGMEU has requested that the events remain unnamed but said they fit with Conwy’s outdoor offer and key venues.
