The 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will run from the 4th - 15th of April throughout various venues on the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
The games will host well over 600,000 athletes, media and visitors who are anticipated to make an additional 6 million trips throughout the transport networks of the Gold Coast and Brisbane. During this period there may be intermittent disruption to our services as our staff accommodate the logistics of travel which will change each day.
We also have team members who will be working from home if their homes are located in suburbs known to be inaccessible. Whilst no one on the Gold Coast knows exactly what will happen during the games, there are two aspects of our business that may be impacted.
- Inbound telephone calls - with team members working remotely, immediate access to inbound telephone calls may be impacted. However, we will promptly respond to recorded messages if for some reason calls are directed to message bank. There is no anticipated change to response times to requests lodged via email to service (at) ozbeanz.com.
- Hardware purchases - our distributors and couriers are advising that in the weeks leading up to the games, for the duration of the Games and for up to 2 weeks after the Games there may be disruption due to temporary road closures during particular events, as well as congestion around Games venues. This may impact lead times for fulfilling hardware orders and we may need to fulfil orders from interstate warehouses depending on requirements. Should your business have any special or project requirements during this period, please contact us so we can plan accordingly.
The Commonwealth Games is one of the biggest events in the history of the Gold Coast and we are being warned now to expect disruptions. However, ozBeanz is well aware that the rest of the country is 'business as usual' and we will do our best to deliver our services just as normal. All we ask at this time is for some understanding.
