    Trees not Tees - Creating Greener Events

    As humans, on this planet, we all carry great responsibility.
    We're so inspired by the legends from Trees Not Tees and are proud to share this game-changing initiative:

    What is the Trees not Tees concept?

    It's in the name! Plant a tree instead of choosing a tee (t-shirt)

    “We work with race and event organisers to give participants the option of planting a tree rather than getting a t-shirt they won’t wear.” says Trees Not Tees Founder Jim Mann

    “Millions of event t-shirts are produced and given away each year that are never worn. Let’s plant millions of trees instead.” Instead of buying too...

    Finding Balance : The Bicyclette Story

    Written by Sarah Sweeney, featuring Emily Manchon

    Emily’s event management business came to a grinding halt in March last year due to COVID. Even though she had a toddler, was pregnant and building a new house, she still felt the urge to "work" on something… finding the space to create Bicyclette.

    Bicyclette provides high school-aged girls and females beyond teenage years with a one-day health and wellbeing clinic run by experts in both mind and body. It ensures females are developing and preserving the tools which are most important for their livelihoods.

    Like thousands of events across the ...

  • Vaccine Passports

    Vaccine Passports

    It's the big question that everyone is asking:

    What's the plan for events once we hit certain vaccination levels across the country?

    Firstly, please note, none of the below should be considered legal advice in any way and each business should perform their own due diligence and establish their own policies with regard to requiring proof of vaccination at events.

    Although the answer to the above question is a bit like gazing into a crystal ball, there are a number of more specific questions that customers have recently been asking, that we are looking at answering.

    To date, the most regular ...

  • Cancelled Events and Refund Policies

    Cancelled Events and Refund Policies

    It's never easy to cancel an event. Matter of fact, it really sucks.

    If an event has been cancelled because of COVID-19, it’s crucial to know what participants are entitled to when it comes to refunds, credits and other options.

    Consumer Affairs Victoria media adviser Anna Basil-Jones has been quoted "if an event is unable to go ahead due to COVID-19, consumers are entitled to a refund for any services not provided." A booking could become a ‘frustrated contract’ if it is impossible to perform or carry out the contract due to events beyond the control of all parties.

    In such a case the partic...

    Return to Fun Runs Survey - September 2021

    In 2020 Register Now conducted four separate Return to Fun Runs during COVID-19 surveys to understand the general sentiment of the Australian running community and how opinions developed as conditions change across the country.

    Green My Plate - Make Dishes, Not Waste

    We sit down with Green My Plate co-founder Ryan "Jonesy" Jones to chat about his venture and vision for the future.

    Jonesy, tell us in one sentence: What is it that Green My Plate do?

    We supply reusable, light-weight, event safe plates, bowls and cutlery as well as wash stations, staff and compost bins to all types of events.

    Where did this idea come from?

    A few mates and I sat down over a beer (coincidentally at the Sustainable Living Festival in Melbourne). We talked about how unsustainable events were and what we thought we could do to create a soluti...

    Register Now’s Newest Feature you might want to Tri

    The future is here! (ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but we are excited!)

    Here at Register Now, we are self-proclaimed data and event nerds. We’ve had a new feature go live that appeals to both branches of our nerdiness!
