It’s 2021 and it’s impossible to think of another event held over a zoom call! While the restrictions are slowly being lifted in Sydney, we can finally bid farewell to the low-profile weddings, birthday parties and every other boring event we’ve been attending. Most of the event venues in Sydney are now open and here are some tips for holding a safe event that won’t drive your group of guests to quarantine.
While searching for a venue, it is important that you have a brief overview of the restrictions linked to hosting events and gatherings in this current and ever-changing situation. From ensuring round the clock cleaning services at the venue to following the 2-square metre rule, the weight falls upon each event space in Sydney that is now open for bookings. That being said, you can easily find a safe venue around the famous sightseeing destinations in the city. For instance, Sydney Harbour. Be it a luxury boat hire on Sydney Harbour or the numerous waterfront venues here, the harbour is a guaranteed safe place to host an event in 2021. With picturesque views of the harbour attractions and a luxe ambience, these venues are amazing and sure to make the event of your dreams. A unique choice of venue up for grabs is the luxury catamaran on hire in Sydney that has spacious climate-controlled interiors, modernised galleys that serve up a freshly prepared meal and offers excellent photo opportunities. This amazing floating event venue is a much sought-after option among the locals as you can ensure a safe yet enjoyable experience for your guests.
In the wake of the pandemic, it is always better to host an intimate event with less number of guests to avoid any fatal shortcomings. Bearing this in mind, it is possible to host an event all by yourself without having to rely on an event management team. Until the pandemic hit us, our celebrations were often gauged by the number of guests, the size of the hall, the decorations and the variety of food served. However, fast forward to the current times, simplicity is the inevitable norm. But, that doesn’t mean we can compromise on the fun side, does it?
To follow up on the do’s and don’ts of hosting an event during these difficult times, here are some things to keep in your mind.
Prepare a guest list that works in your favour
Find creative ways to remind your guests to sanitise & wash their hands at regular intervals, to state the obvious.
If you’re hosting an outdoor event, the permitted number of guests as per the NSW government is up to 200 people. Whereas for indoor venues, the rule is to take in only 50% capacity of the total venue.
If the event is held at your home, you may take in up to 100 visitors at a time.
The NSW government has devised a foolproof safety plan to fight the virus. If you’re planning an event in the city, it is important that you complete and register a safety plan and access your QR code. Also, if you’re wondering if you need to go through all the hassle, the answer might be yes. If you’re still wondering, here’s a list of events that should use the safety plan without fail.
Any event at your home with more than 100 people
