A COVID Safe Event

The 2022 Art of Attraction Tourism Summit is a COVID Safe event.

The conference has a Queensland Government COVID Safe Event Plan.

We appreciate that there are significant concerns about the impacts and uncertainties due to the pandemic. Taking this into account, the decision has been made that all participants to any part of the event program, including the social program, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


Delegates will be required to provide their COVID-19 Digital Vaccination Certificate, or proof of a Commonwealth Government-sanctioned medical exemption, prior to being admitted attendance at the Conference or any of its satellite activities. If you are not fully vaccinated, or do not provide proof of vaccination or medical exemption, then you will not be granted entry.


We apologise if this policy proves to be inconvenient for you, but it is necessary to both give us the best chance of hosting this live event and keeping all attendees safe.


Can I attend virtually?

Early this year (2021) we reached out to potential delegates seeking feedback on whether they would attend a virtual conference. The collective reply was clear. Given only a small number of people stated that they would be willing to pay a fee that would be necessary to cover the costs of hosting a hybrid event with a virtual access component, the decision for a solely face-to-face conference in 2022 was made.

We appreciate that the face-to-face for fully vaccinated delegates ‘model’ does not work for everyone. And that is why we are negotiating for permission to record presentations and make them available online for a user-pays fee post conference.


What happens if we go into another lockdown and state borders close?

If the Art of Attraction is unable to proceed due to COVID-19 Government-imposed restrictions, then we will consider options to either move to a virtual delivery or postpone to a future time. In that case, registrations will be transferred to that date. If the registered delegate cannot attend on the new dates then either the registration can be transferred to another person or a refund will be given.

Regarding accommodation and travel, the conference organisers are not liable for any delegate, exhibitor, or partner travel and / or accommodation costs associated with the cancellation or postponement of the event. We strongly recommend that you look carefully are the Terms and Conditions of your chosen carriers and accommodation providers before booking.


What if the Summit and / or awards is required to reduce number of attendees?

This is highly unlikely with The Events Centre Caloundra being chosen due to its large capacity. However, if we are required to scale-back attendee numbers then delegates will be contacted individually to determine the best outcome.


What safety measures have been adopted for the 2022 Art of Attraction?

The health and safety of our delegates, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff is paramount, so we are working closely with The Events Centre Caloundra to ensure everyone adheres to all government regulations and protocols. In addition, only fully vaccinated delegates and participants will be permitted to attend.


Do I get a refund if I have registered but don't wish to attend due to concerns about COVID-19?

We understand the concerns some people have about our changed world. So if you no longer wish to attend due to concerns about COVID-19 but there are no government-imposed restrictions in place then please email kim@awardsabsolute.com outlining your concerns. Each request will be considered on an individual merit, working with you to address your concerns and find a solution.
