    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 ...

    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!

    From now on, Clients that are taking registrations for triathlon or duathlon (or aquathlon/aquathon) events can check a participant’s Triathlon Australia (TA) Membership status in real time.

  • The 6 STEPPS to signing up more people, more often

    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. She says running, wellbeing, and the active world, as you might suspect, “is a huge part of my life". But in reality, if Kat was like many of us, she wouldn’t be moving much at all.

    That is because Kat has a condition that has caused her to collapse not once, but four times during running events. But she keeps coming back...

    Kat’s sto...

    Despite the sports event industry being brought to a stand-still in 2020, there’s much to reflect and learn on. 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...
