We guarantee every venue will be cleaned and have hand sanitising stations in keeping with COVID-19 regulations but don’t forget your masks should they be mandated in your state or district at the time of each expo, along with compulsory CovidSafe app checkins and physical distancing.
For peace of mind, we’ll also have St John Ambulance officers in attendance and stringent regular cleaning through the venues.
Every venue will have your health and safety as a priority, but remember, the COVID landscape is constantly changing - check with each venue and for any further restrictions or government mandates closer to the event or prior to attending.
