Eventbrite launches free COVID-19 Safety Playbook for events 

Eventbrite launches free COVID-19 Safety Playbook for events 
June 29, 2020

Eventbrite has launched a free COVID-19 Safety Playbook for events - a hands-on resource designed to help event organisers safely navigate the return of live events.

Now that event restrictions are slowly being lifted in Australia, event organisers need to consider the safety and well-being of their staff and guests, while attendees seek comfort in knowing their safety has been thoroughly considered.

Developed in collaboration with risk management and health experts from The Chertoff Group, and informed by published guidance from the World Health Organization, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and Johns Hopkins Centre for Health Security, the playbook is designed to provide creators of all events with resources to adopt new safety policies and procedures that follow the COVID-19 advice of health officials and regulators.

Eventbrite recognise that every event is different and each business owner, venue and event creator needs to consider and address risks based on the unique characteristics of their event.

This COVID-19 Safety Playbook serves as an actionable guide with downloadable worksheets and communication templates that will help creators: 

  • Understand their role and responsibility in identifying and managing the risk of COVID-19 transmission at their event.
  • Create a pre-event safety checklist to identify potential transmission risks that may affect their event, understand opportunities to manage those risks, and make informed decisions about risk acceptance.
  • Communicate safety policies and procedures to event staff and attendees, including their respective roles in increasing the likelihood of a safe event.

The Chertoff Group Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Michael Chertoff advises that “as the world contemplates safe ways to re-open during the COVID-19 pandemic, our team was proud to leverage our risk management methodology and experience – as well as the latest health and safety guidance – to help Eventbrite develop actionable resources that empower Eventbrite’s event creators to make risk-based decisions around when and how to host their events.”

Eventbrite Vice President of policy and platform operations, Linsey Morrison adds “At Eventbrite, it’s our job to empower our community of creators with the tools they need to host incredible events, with safety top-of-mind.

“The connections we make through live events are a staple of society. These real life experiences are what make communities whole and it’s imperative that as the world opens back up, creators have resources to make informed decisions about event safety, and that attendees walk into events with confidence and clarity on how event creators are taking steps to protect their well-being. Our playbook is designed to help provide that.”
