Tourism Saskatchewan defines a National or International Tourism Event as one that:
demonstrates sufficient national or international reputation to draw tourists (reputation);
demonstrates a national or international reputation that attracts significant media exposure (media); and
does not recur annually in Saskatchewan, but travels nationally or internationally to host destinations (one-time).
The National and International Tourism Events Category will provide support to encourage the attraction, hosting and marketing of one-time, national and international events in the areas of sports, culture, meetings and conventions.

Each National and International Tourism Events application will be assessed for the following:
an increase in tourist visitation and tourist receipts in Saskatchewan;
an increase in national/international profile for Saskatchewan; and
