Learning & Events
Who should attend:
Local Government event management staff | Government and commercial event sponsors | Parks and Recreation managers & event staff | Event holders looking to undertake event planning and delivery | Community Development and Community Program leaders working within the parks and leisure industry.
Given the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the importance of identifying, analysing, assessing and managing uncertainly in an event planning and delivery context is even more critical than usual. We have now, over a prolonged period of time, already witnessed the cancellation or postponement of events globally across multiple sectors (e.g. in sports, arts and entertainment). In the context of WA based-events, the considerations, risks, and implications may be multiple (e.g. a disinclination for invited acts to travel, reduced patronage or visitation, supply chain challenges, regular and unannounced changes to the information being provided to patrons prior to the event, changes in government policy, increased vigilance/health provision and the financial loss associated with potential event cancellation or postponement). However, as we look to a 'new normal' this workshop will address the recovery options that best manage downside risk and embrace opportunity.
