Current as at 18th March 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, GEMS Event Management Australia are taking additional measures to safeguard our team and our clients.
While many of our events have postponed until later in 2020 or through to early 2021, for those other events planned for 2020 we are very aware that reduced delegates could be the norm throughout 2020. For that reason, over the next two weeks, our team will be discussing with you, the budgets for any upcoming events and look at ways to continue to connect with your stakeholders virtually over the coming months, so that we can work with you to minimise the risk to your organisation. We are currently in discussions with venues and suppliers to determine what terms and conditions will be upheld in relation to any upcoming events.
We are also about to enact measures in our office to ensure we are protecting our staff and subsequently ensuring our continued capacity. From Wednesday, 18th March our team will be working from home. We are lucky that we have a long history in working remotely, so this has been quite an easy transition. Please continue to call our office number which will be diverted to a member of our team or email any of us at any time.
We encourage our friends everywhere to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard their health and that of others. It’s everyone’s responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus. The Australian Government Health Department’s website and your local health authorities are the best resources for updates and answers to questions.
Over the years, as our GEMS community has been faced with challenges, we have always been inspired by how we emerge stronger and with an even deeper sense of purpose. We will persevere through this challenge, too.
Thank you for your business, loyalty and patience.
