To our valued exhibitors,

If you are sick of hearing the word ‘COVID’ and the catch cry “We’re All in This Together” then we have some bad news and some good news.

The bad news is that those terms will probably be around for quite a while yet. The good news is that we are now seeing some movement around the event industry with industry specific planning approvals starting to be rolled out.

Operating under the new COVID-Safe Site-Specific Plan – sorry, there’s that ‘C’ word again. Our first COVID-Safe event will get under way on the Gold Coast, from the 24th to the 26th of July, www.GoldCoastExpo.com.au.

The timing for this is perfect because the Queensland Government is about to unleash a massive campaign to promote Queensland-based holidays, caravanning and self-drive holidays and local leisure destinations.

The Government and Australian Events are collectively keen about keeping your staff safe and giving patrons the confidence that we are taking every precaution to keep them safe too ; but, at the same time, allowing patrons to talk to you and get up close and personal – but not too close – with your products.

There will be some changes as to how we manage our events on-site and what your responsibilities will be on your exhibition display space. Most of the revised procedures will be in line with what you are doing in your work place right now and for the patrons it will be very similar to what they are experiencing when they are out shopping or in public and community areas right now. As we get within a few weeks of each event, you will receive updates on procedures, and we will be working closely with you to ensure that we all ‘get through this together’.

Some of our event dates did change during the early parts of COVID, with some of them being postponed. Click here to view the up-to-date list of events, with dates and venues.

If you would like to book in for any of these events, please fill out the Exhibitor Site Enquiry Form and we will get back to you promptly. If you are already booked into any of our events, we will be in touch more regularly now with event updates and event news.

We thank you sincerely for your patience and your ongoing support.
