The Bendigo Agricultural Show Society is hoping to gain further funding from the federal government to complete the development of the Regional Event Complex.
The centre at the Prince of Wales Showgrounds is used for large-scale events like exhibitions, trade shows, conferences and conventions.
"This new funding would be part of the finalisation of the Regional Event Centre Development," the society's executive officer Ian Furze said.
"The complex was built about four years ago but things like landscaping have not been done due to the lack of funds.
"We're now looking to finalise that aspect of the showgrounds to provide proper roads, infrastructure, plumbing works, and landscaping."
The group said they were looking for $933,208 to complete the project.
The proposed work includes improving access for pedestrians and vehicles, landscaping the surrounds at the front and back of the regional events centre, and upgrading surface drainage and unsafe road conditions.
"Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters is considering our proposal but she hasn't announced any funding yet," Mr Furze said.
"We're hopeful the government of the day will help with the funding."
Mr Furze said the centre was a key part of Bendigo and the final work on the development would make a difference to the region.
"A lot of our major events utilise the facilities," he said. "We currently have between 500,000-600,000 people attend the venue every year.
"Being able to provide proper infrastructure and roadways will help attract additional major events to the Bendigo region."
