The Aerosol Association of Australia has postponed its Gala Awards Dinner to March 2022 due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
On 18 October, New South Wales took the first step of its roadmap out of restrictions. While this is a welcome development, according to the Association, the roadmap sees the one person per 4 square-metre rule for functions and hospitality venues persist until 1 December.
Additionally, several other states are not lifting their restrictions on inter-state travel. This means the Gala Awards Dinner, originally planned for 16 November, has been moved to 31 March 2022.
The Association commented: “While we could never have foreseen the repeated disruptions which have been beset planning for the event, pleased be assured of our commitment to delivering a world-class celebration of innovation and excellence in the aerosol industry and to continuing the high standards set at our first such celebration in 1994.
“We thank you for your support and continued patience and look forward to seeing you at our Gala Dinner in the first quarter of 2022!”
