With Melbourne currently in Stage three restrictions, and the possibility of a total lockdown looming, the Victorian event industry is arguably being hit harder than other states currently.
With no respite on the horizon, the local events industry is looking to send a message to the Victorian government asking for targeted support for their sector.
The support being asked from the Andrews government includes:
- Funding support for businesses in the event industry – including revisiting the Business Support Fund for the many event industry businesses that have not been eligible.
- Working with the industry to develop a proactive plan to get events up and running again as soon as it is safe to do so.
- For the state government, and its agencies, to commit to continuing to hold their events as soon as restrictions are lifted.
