Event Sector Support

Events Tasmania continues to build the capacity of events through its Event Sector Support program. This helps deliver the Tasmanian Government Events Strategy 2015-2020 through Events Tasmania's aims to attract people to Tasmania, moving Tasmanians around the state and getting people talking about Tasmania.

Learn how to make a COVID-19 Safety Plan

Events Tasmania partnered with WorkSafe Tasmania to deliver an online information session to help events businesses and organisations navigate the process of developing their COVID-19 Safety Plan.

As part of these information sessions we had lots of fantastic questions from participants – we will have all the answers to these questions soon, with the help of WorkSafe and Public Health.

We will publish these answers on this page below the video and we encourage you to send through any other questions you have about the process.

Presented by Jacqui Allen, Deputy Secretary for Cultural and Tourism Development and Brad Parker from WorkSafe Tasmania, they walk you through:

  • why you need to have a COVID-19 Safety Plan
  • where to find checklists, guidelines and plan templates
  • tips and tricks to filling in the plan template or add to your existing workplace plan
  • where to get help with writing your plan.
