    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.

    The 6 STEPPS to signing up more people, more often

    Kat is 35, lives on the Gold Coast, is a primary school teacher, dietitian, runs a yoga business, completes marathons, and she is even setting up a charity in Sierra Leone, which enables orphaned and vulnerable youth to go to the Sierra Leone Marathon each year.

Sports events organisers were forced to implement new ways of managing events and engaging with participants – new ways that are likely to stick. We’ve learnt that we can’t predict what’s around the corner and that things can change overnight, which for the events industry, can be brutal.

    Now, over 12 months on from the peak of COVID-19, the sports events industry is picking itself up and getting on with it. Here we talk ab...
