Support for The Events and Travel Industry During COVID-19

March 13th 2020 - a day that will be known as Black Friday in the event industry. With the impact of COVID-19 causing events around Australia to be cancelled and the recommendation of cancelling gatherings of 500+ attendee events, it has left the travel and events industry facing a very grim short to medium term future.

Whilst Scott Morrison's stimulus package is due to inject $17.6b back into the economy, what about the massive financial toll it is going to take on event organisers, venues, event suppliers and travel organisers who have lost business, time and money, all of which they will likely have to take the hit for.

We urge Scott Morrison to include a rescue package for the travel and event industry to cover short term losses and to help keep their businesses afloat. 

If you have been financially impacted by the cancellation of events due to COVID-19, please sign and let our government know that we are struggling and will be for months to come.
