For the past 20 years, eBizDocs hosted and participated in many events. As the world reopens, event creators have a lot to consider as they bring their communities together again.

We are sharing this resource – Eventbrite’s COVID-19 Safety Playbook for Events  – for you to consider when deciding how to protect the health and well-being of attendees and staff.

Eventbrite partnered with risk management and health experts at the Chertoff Group to develop Eventbrite’s COVID-19 Safety Playbook for Events.
They created these resources for you to plan ahead and execute safe, successful events, as we start to gather together again.
These resources will help you:
• Understand the risks of COVID-19 transmission at events and your role in identifying and managing those risks.
• Identify, effectively manage, and make informed decisions about transmission risks that may affect your event.
• Create a pre-event safety checklist addressing COVID-19 risks.
• Communicate your safety policies and procedures to staff and attendees, including their critical role and responsibility in having a safe event.

Before relaunching in-person experiences, event creators will need to thoughtfully consider safety and security risks for their event. Many factors can influence an event’s risk profile, including the location of the venue, the purpose of the event, and the event-goers attending. These resources will help you address the threat of COVID-19 and manage the risk of transmission. Following the expertise of health officials and regulators, events will need to adopt new policies and procedures to minimize physical contact and maximize the health and well-being of their attendees. This playbook assumes there are no mandatory prohibitions affecting your event or gathering.

Event creators should assume that during a global pandemic, when there is COVID-19 prevalence in virtually every locale, every event goer and staff member could transmit the virus. Because everyone is a potential transmission risk, taking appropriate safety and risk management measures is crucial, as is communicating staff and attendee requirements and responsibilities during these unprecedented circumstances.
