COVID-19 June 11 2020

The global pandemic has put the world on hold especially to the live events sector and after several months of isolation there is positive signs of some recovery where restrictions seem to be lifting on some sectors being education , retail, food eateries and restaurants. The government is still asking for workers to be working remotely from home as the preferred work option, as public transport being a concern at this stage.

Some event organizers are hopefully of upcoming events scheduled for September onwards to be going ahead although perhaps in a smaller capacity with international borders expected to be still closed by then.

Our trans-tasman cousins New Zealand this week have lifted lockdown restrictions and giving the green light to the country’s live entertainment industry to come out of hibernation. Contact tracing and border controls remaining it means concerts and and live events/entertainment can start up again although things will be a little different.

The re-opening of live entertainment in New Zealand has given hope and electrified Australian arts and entertainment sector mothballed since restrictions were introduced mid 13th March.

Unless there were further serious outbreaks and the “second wave” of the virus came to fruition this much excited New Zealand announcement has put the industry in a positive frame for what is expected come spring time.
