Dear Members,

As the situation regarding COVID-19 and the restrictions around mass gatherings continues to evolve, the EEAA is collaborating with key industry stakeholders and government to secure assistance for the exhibition and business events industry.

The EEAA is supporting the BECA survey around the projected people and financial impact of COVID-19 mass gathering and meeting restrictions on your business. Submissions are due on Monday morning, if you have not received it, access the survey here.

COVID-19 INFORMATION FROM STATES AND TERRITORIES – AS AT 20 MARCH 2020

On Wednesday 18 March, The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) issued advice to limit non-essential organised gatherings to fewer than 100 people.

The National Cabinet are meeting again today and are planning to introduce more guidelines on indoor gatherings. Please continue to follow the Australian Government Department of Health Website for the latest developments.
