BECA delivers COVID Safe guidelines to Government
The Business Events Council of Australia (BECA) has delivered a set of strategic principles to Government that instills confidence in Australia’s business events industry so that COVID-19 restrictions can be safely lifted and the industry can rapidly restart.
The news coincides with the unveiling of the three-step plan to lift COVID-19 restrictions by the Government last Friday. While welcomed by BECA, the peak industry body and its Safety and Hygiene Subcommittee are now seeking to work closely with officials to ensure a robust and sustainable distinction can be made between highly organised and managed business events in controlled settings from mass gatherings – to further expedite the industry’s recovery.
PCOA will continue to be a voice to government through our BECA membership, lobbying for any support the government can provide to small business in our sector affected by lost revenue due to COVID-19 cancellations, postponements and attrition.
