It started well – then the restrictions mandated with the Government Protection Framework Red Traffic Light at the end of January changed the way we were able to do business. But our experience from previous Covid lockdowns meant we were able to adapt and respond quickly.
Meetings usually now have a mixture of live and online attendees and our AV Team are proficient in providing the services for these Hybrid meetings.
While Speedway has live-streamed events adding to the live audience for some time, on 5 February the event was entirely livestreamed. The result was a success with several thousand linking remotely and able to enjoy the event.
This service has continued as well as entry for a live audience under Red restricted capacity of 500 into the stadium.
As Omicron continues to grow and peak, we are optimistic that May could see the hosting of planned events in the Arena. The variety and level of activities at Trustpower Baypark has significantly increased with loyal and new audiences enjoying the entertainment on offer for all the community.
Baystation offers adrenaline-pumping fun for the young and the young at heart with four action packed activities in one great location. Live out your Tokyo Drift fantasies on the electric Drift Trikes or combine the very best of go karts and sail boats to give you the ultimate land-sailing experience on the Blokarts.
For high-speed, adrenaline-filled action you can’t go past Paintball, or if you are looking for something a little less messy try out the outdoor Laser Tag. Combine our epic activities for the ultimate day out, perfect for birthdays, staff functions and events. BayStation is currently operating under the Covid Protection Framework (Red Traffic Light).
