Newsletter – November 2020

What a year! We have all learnt so much from the COVID-19 pandemic and the majority of feedback we have taken from this experience is that a lot of our Shows are taking 2020 and implementing new Processes, Procedures, Archiving and just taking to time to rethink how they do things.

The office has been a hive of activity with no rest for the wicket! We have been continuously in talks with our Government departments and stakeholders to ensure we are on top of all information our shows may require.

Trevor has been working hard creating a Queensland Shows and Showgrounds Industry COVID Safe Plan and is working with Queensland Health to get this approved. We are up to our 6th set of suggestions from Queensland Health, fingers and toes crossed we get it approved by the end of the year.
