2)Applications received by the deadline (late summer) will be evaluated based on available budget funds and the following factors as appropriate:

-Extent to which event is synonymous with or showcases a unique feature of the destination

-Seasonality (Note: events held during peak summer season will not be considered)

-Target audience (e.g. demographics, geography, reach)

-Success rate (e.g. results from prior year or similar event)

-Ability to document attendance and lodging rooms generated

3)Applications received after the deadline may be considered for new events only, provided budget funds are available for this purpose and the new event is at least three months out to ensure adequate lead time to properly market the event.
