Happy Tuesday (if you didn’t know what day it was like me) everyone! 🤙⁣

Just touching base with you all to let you know we are not dead, contrary to some rumours 😅 we’re very much alive, and very much kicking butts into gear to get the go ahead on solid dates for @austattooexpo ✊✊⁣

We understand that chopping and changing is confusing and annoying, so we’re just going to lay it out straight, when we get the approval on dates we have available in 2020, we will be running full steam ahead to make sure you get to catch up with all your favourite tattoo artists across the country!⁣

There’s been a few people upset, but the majority of you have been incredible supportive and understanding that we are doing our best to make sure Australian Tattoo Expo survives this truly ANNOYING space of time.⁣

A huge thanks to everyone that continues to share photos from previous events, and especially to all of you continuing to buy tickets to the event and for supporting the event industry!⁣

Not just us, but if you’re in a financial position to support festivals and events in this country, make sure you grab a ticket, when everything kicks back off it’s going to be a WILD time for events!⁣

Thanks again everyone, enjoy your Sunday night...⁣
Fuck. Tuesday night... TUESDAY NIGHT 😂⁣

COVID-19 update: due to the unforeseen closure of large events, we must fulfil our social responsibility to help minimise the spread of the virus by rescheduling the Australian Tattoo Expo that was to be held this weekend.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Australian Exhibition Group (AEG) has worked tirelessly to curate Australia’s most premiere & professional event portfolio extending to 9 other events operating this year. Rescheduling the event is truly heartbreaking & catastrophic to the Australian Event Industry.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Based on the information we have at this time, we are not rescheduling any additional events. That said, supplied information continues to evolve, & we are closely monitoring & evaluating the status of our future operations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The extremely short notice of the official mandate issued late Friday afternoon made it challenging to acquire the information needed to answer your questions. Fortunately, AEG have acquired tentative dates for the rescheduling of the Australian Tattoo Expo to June 12-14 at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
AEG are thrilled to provide world-class events to the public, as well as provide a revenue stream to the Australian Tattoo Industry. This revenue stream is now more important than ever. Our Exhibitors and Artists will rely on your ongoing support to guide the Tattoo Industry through this time of uncertainty & hardship.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are overwhelmed with the amount of support, patience & understanding you have shown during this time of uncertainty, without it, the Australian Event Industry will collapse.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ticket holders & exhibitors will be contacted with more information, in the meantime we urge you to take care of one another & look forward to seeing you at our biggest & boldest Australian Tattoo Expo yet!
