First up – events are back and businesses are recruiting so I’ve introduced a jobs board with an introductory offer of $70 per listing. Your listing will appear on the ASE site for 30 days (or until the job is filled) and will be promoted via the weekly update. And since you are about to ask – the ASE email posts currently go to 3666 recipients (mostly in Australia). Lodge your listing here
I’ve addressed previously the issue of confidence and the latest COVID hospitalisation figures are doing nothing to help with confidence in live events – especially corporate events where businesses are risk adverse. Outdoor festivals attended by young people should be rocking back – and they are with just a few sticking points with licencing and the weather. Splendour in the Grass have been hit with a double whammy this weekend.
As is the rest of the event industry as governments and unions call for people to work from home again. Which will once again affect the event industry – so I wrote an article about it.
And speaking of a united industry voice Donna Kessler’s article has generated quite a bit of comment (directly on the article and in socials)
On a positive note – it was great to get together with a bunch of industry stalwarts this week for dinner
The William Angliss Institute in Melbourne is having an open day for prospective hospitality and event management students featuring William Angliss graduate, Shannon Bennett (I must admit I had to google to find more about him but I guess aspiring chefs will know who he is)
