What to do on the day

  1. Find a park
    Enter the Claudelands Events Centre through Gate 4. Someone at the gate will direct you to the car park.
  2. Enter the exhibition building
    One of our staff will greet you at the entrance of the Heaphy Room. They will ask you a few quick questions about COVID-19, and then guide you to the next area.

    Inside, another member of our staff will ask if you registered online at Eventbrite, or if you are a “walk-in”. They will then ask for your name. You can show them your Eventbrite ticket if you have one.
