IT CAN BE DONE! QLD successfully hosts Australia’s first major exhibition under strict COVIDsafe regulations.
Everyone involved deserves to be celebrated, from organisers to exhibitors through to attendees as it will continue to take strong, sensible efforts from the entire community to build on this progress.
The annual caravan and camping consumer event, the Gold Coast Expo, was held from July 24-26 at the Gold Coast Turf Club. The expo showcased the latest in camping, caravaning, 4x4s and boating across a large outdoor space, where over 10,000 people were expected to attend over the three days.
The organiser, Australian Events, mentioned that it required “two months of badgering Queensland Health” in order to gain approval to hold the event, and additional time to develop a COVIDsafe plan for the event industry. “We have worked hard to develop new systems and processes to meet the COVID challenge and at the same time create a safe environment for exhibitors as well as the public,” organiser Bob Carroll added.
