World Time Attack Challenge is an outdoor event so it’s important to keep the weather conditions in mind when preparing for the event. It can get hot so make sure your staff is well hydrated and if necessary work in rotating shifts, using the air conditioned corporate room as a rest area. The Pit Area can get windy at times so ensure all your marquees are sufficiently weighed down and all your displays secured.
While we have overnight security patrolling the area we recommend you put all your valuable items away at the end of the day. We also recommend that you don’t leave your display stand unattended during the day.
If you have any questions regarding the event or your display contact:
Email: email@example.com or call (02) 9638 4643.
