In October 2001, on the eve of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, we got news it had been cancelled.
Working for months, around the clock on an event, only to have it pulled out from under you is one of the strangest feelings and moments I have ever experienced.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have seen responses of every extreme to the ever developing COVID-19 situation.
As medical professionals have pointed out, the uncertainty and concern can have damaging psychological effects on the community. Now, more than ever, it is a time for measured and considered communications with your stakeholders.
We understand the changing environment for many organisations due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact on the events, hospitality, tourism and volunteer industry.
We want to assure you that Fetching Events & Communications is staying focused on the facts and official updates and we are here to support you with your projects and future planning.
First and foremost, we are committed to delivering safe, healthy and responsible events and projects and therefore continue to closely monitor the most up to date and official advice, the impact of the current environment as well as the concerns and restrictions of our guests and delegates.
We are working to address challenges and develop any required solutions for scheduled events and projects.
Now more than ever is when we can come together as a community and deliver projects and programs that still meet your objectives, even if in alternative formats. This is a time that you can prove yourself as an innovator and show your commitment to supporting and engaging with your communities, members and stakeholders during periods of isolation, no matter the global situation.
