May 2020 Update

Hi all, another quick update from me, Nick Morris, about the current state of Adelaide Business Events. Despite the opening up of many businesses, in-person events are still very restricted with no more than 20 people allowed in a room and no more than 1 person per 4 square metres (see the latest government advice here). Some sit-down events such as workshops and presentations might be allowed.

We made the decision a few months ago to allow online events in our listings which we usually don’t allow and that will be continuing while in-person events are not possible. We recognise that this has led to an overall decrease in the quality of the event listings as there just aren’t that many relevant events around so we’ve been casting a wider net. We apologise for that and hope that you will stick with us. If you notice any events that you think are totally irrelevant then please contact us as it may have slipped through our filters.

Support Local!

Please remember to keep supporting local businesses.

A quick shoutout to Books and Bubbles for their great Pre-loved Books and Self Care Boxes. When your eyes are tired from reading from a screen all day and every day then maybe its time to pick up a physical book again! Even better; make an afternoon of it with a Books and Bubbles package including bath salts and a bubbly drink. They make great gifts too! Check them out here.

Be safe and let’s beat this thing together!

ABE Updates

Just a quick post to give you some ABE updates. The last time you heard from me I was complaining about Mailchimp’s terrible customer service but we finally got that problem solved and have been sending our weekly events email digest since the beginning of the year.

Obviously the in-person events space has taken a big hit lately with the COVID19 situation and we certainly echo local health guidelines to stay socially distant and practice good hygiene. We’re continuing to send our weekly email as many in-person events have now gone online and we’ve also relaxed our previous guidelines to allow webinars and other online events that we used to try and filter out.

Online events don’t have quite the same feeling as in-person but they have their own advantages and they’re also all we’ve got at the moment so I suggest you see what’s available and start putting some of them in your calendar and get involved! Many businesses will be experiencing a downturn but hopefully its not the end and online events can help you to get some useful information, such as;

  • Cutting costs and leveraging government programs to help you survive the downturn
  • Working better online or adapting your product/service for online delivery
  • Marketing ideas to increase your share of the shrinking market while competitors are floundering
  • Getting some solid plans in place so you can hit the ground running when restrictions are lifted and business picks up again

Support Local!

I also want to encourage everyone to support the local businesses around you in any way that you can.

A quick shoutout to IO Energy which are an exciting new energy company that have found themselves launching at a rather inopportune time but what they’re offering is so important and could help people save money in these tough times as well. They’re helping people lower their carbon footprint and reduce their electricity bills by utilising home batteries and clean energy providers. Check them out here.

Be safe and let’s beat this thing together!

Hello Adelaide business owners, here are your events for the next two weeks!

What Happened to the Weekly Email?

Unfortunately we’ve been unable to send the weekly email since late October as Mailchimp has decided to suspend our account for no apparent reason. We submitted a review request within 30 mins of the suspension but are yet to receive a reply from their compliance department and unable to make further contact until we do.

So while we’re getting that sorted out, we’ll be posting the weekly event digest here on the blog.

Cheers,

Nick Morris

Unfortunately we’ve been unable to send the last two editions of our weekly email as Mailchimp has decided to suspend our account for no apparent reason and their compliance department hasn’t responded to our case for nearly 10 days.

Coworking at the Adelaide Hills Business Centre in Woodside

We were lucky enough to visit the Adelaide Hills Business Centre in Woodside recently for one of our regular Jelly Coworking Meetups. The AHBC provides a range of excellent facilities, services and events including meeting rooms, media production room, business meetups and the coworking space. They have a nice location in Woodside, right across the road from the Lobethal Bakery.

We had a nice turnout of 7 local hills businesses for our jelly event and we all enjoyed the space very much. We went to lunch together at Avalon which was great.
