The ATEC COVID Ready program is an on-demand program, designed to equip tourism businesses to operate with confidence in a COVID world.

Available for both ATEC members and non-members, the program is based upon the Australian Federal Government, National COVID Compliance Commission (NCCC) COVIDSafe guidelines.

ATEC curated a collection of key industry working group leaders from across Australia, whom together contributed to the development of ‘ready-made’ sector-specific COVID Ready Checklists for the Touring and Transport, Accommodation, Attractions and Food & Wine sectors. 

ATEC in partnership with Tigertail (a risk consultancy firm) and Richard Beere, Fastrak Asian Solutions came together to develop the COVID Ready program and comprehensive Toolkit.
