The rapid onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an immediate and unprecedented impact on the mass participation sports events industry. This has resulted in a historic number of event cancellations and postponements, loss of jobs and subsequent economic impact on the secondary industries that service these events.
The industry comprises thousands of independent event operators and related suppliers, that rely on registrations and corporate sponsorships to facilitate operations, pay employees and produce events. The full effect of the COVID-19 impact has yet to be realised. However long the pandemic continues, bans on mass gatherings (including mass participation sporting events) are likely to stay in effect (for the short to medium term at least).
The Alliance has been formed with the purpose of presenting a collective voice to lobby Government to provide relief and support for our industry and to advocate for Alliance members. This document forms the guidance, COVID-19 risk identification and mitigation and a road map for the way forward.
As part of a series of webinars, AMPSEA invites you to join Executive Committee members, Lenny Chong and Hailey Mason as they share practical tips on how to navigate the new landscape of event permitting with regard to creating COVID safe events.
Hosted by Mass Participation World's, Chris Robb this webinar will discuss what councils require with regard to event permits to ensure successful applications and on the flip side, what we can learn from Project9 (specialists in event management) on how they have navigated permit approvals in the new world of COVID-19.
