COVID-19 Important Information 2022

COVID-19 Important Information

Exhibitor and attendee safety always has been, and always will be, our top priority.

We are working in consultation with the venue, suppliers, contractors, and local and state governments to ensure that the Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo 2022 is delivered in a safe and controlled environment, within COVID-19 government guidelines.

Both Divcom and the venue follow the NSW Government Health Guidelines, and at this point in time there is no restriction on un-vaccinated people entering the venue. If this changes for what ever reason we will notify our exhibitors and visitors. On arrival at the venue people will be required to check in using the venue and event QR code and if required at that point in time, may be required to wear a mask, but we will keep the exhibitors and visitors up to date with all restrictions in the lead up to the event.

To assist with understanding the regulations currently applicable in NSW (including interstate travel), please refer to this page: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/stay-safe/rules

It is a condition of entry into the exhibition that every exhibitor, contractor, sub-contractor, supplier and their agents comply with the current NSW Covid Safe restrictions.

We kindly ask that you take note of the Terms & Conditions of Entry below in line with our COVID-Safe Event Plan to ensure a safe and enjoyable show experience for everyone.

  3. Attendees are to download the Service NSW App prior to attending.
