Sydney Gift Fair is a COVID SAFE event
AGHA will provide a best practice COVID SAFE environment for the SYDNEY GIFT FAIR and adhere to all current NSW Public Health Orders and recommendations. BUT the most important aspect of maintaining a safe environment is to understand that common sense and personal wellbeing is everyone’s responsibility. It is important to note that the exhibition floor is not different to a shopping centre except far more controls will be in place.

Some of the specific procedures being implemented –

  • • As per NSW Public Health Orders face masks will be mandatory during move in, operational days and move out. It will be a strict condition of entry that face masks are worn at all times unless an official exemption has been obtained prior to the event and relevant documentation available. AGHA will be providing face masks for visitors requiring them and sanitising stations throughout the exhibition.
  • • Exhibitors are encouraged to provide sanitiser and a Covid safe environment on their stands where possible.
  • • AGHA will have complete contact details for every person involved in the event and for the first-time unique emails and phone numbers for every person
  • • Enhanced social distancing particularly in regard queuing, catering and visitor flow
  • • Contactless registration, specific entrances and exits
  • • Wider aisleways
  • • Had approval from SOPA to move Parking from P5 to P1 (much closer and no need for shuttle buses). AGHA will pay for an open air shuttle train from P1 for those that may require transport.
  • • 6 Covid Safe marshals will be employed by AGHA to ensure a safe environment is implemented onsite and provide advice and assistance to exhibitors and visitors when necessary.

 

Vaccination Statement
In January 2022 AGHA sought specific advice from NSW Health regarding vaccination requirements for venues and events in NSW.

Most premises in NSW are now fully open to everyone, regardless of whether individuals are fully vaccinated or not. People no longer need to show evidence that they are fully vaccinated at most premises in NSW. In fact, people in NSW are no longer are required to carry evidence of vaccination.

Since December 15 2021, NSW shopping centres, venues, theatres, sporting stadiums, restaurants and all public transport are free from any vaccination status restrictions and as such this includes the Sydney Showground complex.

The only NSW Public Health Order that places a restriction on the Gift Fair is the requirement to wear face masks at all times while at the Fair and a 1 person per 2 square metre cap on attendees is in place.

In practical terms, to check the vaccination status of hundreds of people entering the venue would be a logistical nightmare, create a social distancing bottleneck and create significant angst amongst patrons not being required to produce vaccination status anywhere else in Sydney.

Based on this advice and the inherent logistical issues, AGHA has made the decision that there will be no vaccination requirement for the Sydney Gift Fair at this stage, but may change based on changing circumstances, ongoing advice or health orders.

Children & Babies
Sydney Gift Fair is a business event with no crèche facilities. Children under 14 years are not permitted entry. Babies aged 0-2 years are permitted entry when in a pram or carrying device. AGHA Gift Fairs are trade-only events and whilst AGHA endeavours to ensure the safety of all exhibitors and buyers, the placement of aisles and exhibitor stands in the exhibition halls is not sympathetic to the potential hazard to young children or the use of prams/strollers. If you take your child/ward or pram/stroller into AGHA Gift Fairs, you acknowledge that you have been informed you will be held liable for:

Any injury suffered by any persons as a result; and/or any damage to the exhibition halls, exhibitor stands and/or goods on display at the exhibition caused as a result of your entry accompanied by your child/ward or a pram/stroller.

You release and indemnify AGHA and their related businesses and companies against any damage to your property or injury suffered by you or your child/ward whilst you are in the exhibition halls.
