New Zealand confirms business events of up to 100 can go ahead

After the easing of restrictions on social gatherings and travel this week, the New Zealand government has confirmed ticketed large events, including domestic business events and conferences can now go ahead with a 100-person limit. There is also a one-metre distancing requirement, and contact tracing is essential.

Lisa Hopkins, chief executive of Conventions & Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) said: “This helps the country’s business events sector restart for domestic attendees, and is the first step in the right direction. We look forward to the government’s next review of restrictions in two weeks’ time.”

The current caps across all aspects of New Zealand business and social gatherings are for the first stage of Alert Level Two and will be revisited on 25 May.

New guidelines for the country state that large ticketed events and business events must be seated, they must allow for contact tracing, have physical distancing in place, good hygiene procedures, and any food and drink must meet the hospitality provisions.
