Planning COVIDSafe events-free masterclasses series

Macedon Ranges Shire Council is hosting a free three-part event masterclass series to support event organisers to plan COVIDSafe events.

The sessions will be held from 6pm to 9pm on the following Tuesdays during November.

Reimagine your event in a COVID world, Tuesday 10 November

This session will show event organisers how to re-imagine their event so that they can bounce back quicker. It will look at virtual events, hybrid events, scaling up-and-down, and premium events—with plenty of case studies to inspire.

Scenario Planning, Tuesday 17 November

We do not have a crystal ball so it is important for events to scenario plan to understand how they may exist in 2021.

COVIDSafe Planning, Tuesday 24 November

A practical session where we will explore the practical steps of activating a COVIDSafe event.

The training will be delivered by Linda Tillman, the founder of the online event management training program for regional events rEVENTS Academy™ and Managing Director of regional tourism and event consultancy Tilma Group. Linda has 15 years’ experience across tourism and events with a clear understanding of regional communities.

Council’s Director Planning and Environment, Angela Hughes encouraged event organisers to register for the free masterclasses. “As restrictions ease, events will play an important role in revitalising the economy and enhancing community health and wellbeing, but we must take every precaution to ensure that people can enjoy themselves and be COVIDSafe as we move forward,” she said.

Bookings will be open until midday on the day of each session. Each session will be recorded and made available on Council’s website in the week following the session.
