Thousands of pounds in government funding have been cut for sporting and cultural events in Northern Ireland.
In a statement, the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) said it was scrapping the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) events fund 2015/2016.
Time to lobby for a reversal to what is a short-sighted decision. The return on investment for all of these events is proven , in fact it is mandatory to show a positive effect on the economy before funding is granted.
We, the undersigned, call upon the decision makers at the Northern Ireland Executive to re-think and reverse the decision to scrap the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) events fund 2015/2016.
