IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, we are very disappointed to have to announce that, unfortunately, yet again, we must postpone our Brisbane Event, which was to be held from 12 – 14 March 2021. Over half of our exhibitors travel from other states to attend this event and with borders closing so quickly and frequently it is impossible for us all to predict what will happen in the next month.
Just look at what has happened in the last month in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth. The risk is just too high and we want to make sure everyone stays as safe as possible.
To say we are devastated is an understatement!
But, current ticket holders don’t need to despair! Whether you hold tickets for the 2020 or 2021 Brisbane show, your tickets will be valid when Brisbane finally happens! So hold tight.
Thank you for your understanding – Candice and Brendon
