The challenges of COVID-19 are growing, and raising many questions amongst businesses, organisations and the community as they scramble to adapt to the increasingly fluid situation. Governments and tourism industries are having to balance the fine line between public health and tourism income. Consequently, the action they take and the speed at which they take it may be conservative.
TAG is an organisation that believes in community building, on our campuses and in our profession. For more than twenty years, our annual conference has been invaluable aspect of the professional and social development of members, as well as an environment in which to learn best practices for creating the optimum student experience.
The TAG Board of Directors must act in what we believe to be in the best interest of not only our members, but all stakeholders, and the wider community. Consequently, we have decided to postpone CampusLink 2020 and its associated components which were scheduled to occur in April, to later this year once the immediate threats posed by COVID-19 have hopefully passed. This is in line with actions taken by an increasing number of conferences and events, and government and community expectations. This includes:
- Three days of industry-relevant presentations, workshops, and plenaries
- The TAG Trade Fair
- The much anticipated annual Gala Awards Dinner
- Barista of the Year Final
