It is a very challenging time in Australia’s Event Industry with two states in extended lockdown, many border closures, and a huge amount of uncertainty.
Today we are encouraging people and businesses from right across the Event Industry to complete this national survey to help quantify the difficult situation in our Event Industry:
Our February survey was pivotal in starting to get the real situation in the Event Industry understood by some governments. This survey will give us very specific data to help us, and other industry organisations, to quantify and explain the current situation for workers, freelancers and businesses in the Event Industry to governments and to the media.
We encourage everyone involved in the Event Industry – including event people who mightn’t still be working in the event industry – to participate in this survey. It only takes a couple of minutes.
The Event Industry is not getting the financial support from governments that it needs or deserves. So we encourage everyone to pick up the phone today to call your local members of parliament and let them know what the real situation is in the Event Industry.
You can use this link to automatically find the names and phone numbers for your local state and federal members of parliament:
It is a small thing but one that we know really does make a difference. Most local MPs still don’t understand our industry nor do they fully comprehend what people and businesses in the Event Industry are going through, so they need to hear from the event people in their electorate.
So please call your local members of parliament today. If you can’t get through to your MP ask to make a time to speak with them. And then tell them about your situation, about what your colleagues are going through, and what is needed.
We need real financial support so that people and businesses can survive and COVID cancel event insurance to help events to happen again.
Again, it only takes a few minutes to do and it really does help.
These are small quick things that everyone can do that really do help.
