Visit Winston-Salem allocates up to two percent of its occupancy tax appropriation from its adopted annual budget for support of arts, culture, local festivals, and events. The 2019-20 Arts and Events Marketing Assistance (AEMA) application is now available online. Visit Winston-Salem’s annual AEMA program is designed to support and bolster local organizations whose marketing plan is in alignment with Visit Winston-Salem’s destination marketing objectives and has the potential to produce incremental arts and culture tourism, and generate hotel room nights for Winston-Salem. Applications are due by March 29th.
