Online Sports Expo and Sign-On

February 2021

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Online Sports Expo and Sign-on event! Due to restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sports Expo was held as an interactive online event for the whole month of February.

More than 100 sporting organisations, teams and active leisure groups were listed on the online portal, to provide a ‘one stop information shop’ of get-active opportunities in our region. There were also eight active zone demonstration videos and 30+ free come-and-try days held by local clubs across the region.

The Online Sports Expo has been a win for local sporting clubs and groups with a large response from the public. On council’s Facebook page alone there were 36 posts about the event with a total reach of 160,000 people and 12,900 engagements (likes, comments, shares etc).

The active zone videos were listed on the online portal but were also shared on council’s Facebook page during the month of February and had more than 12,000 views with 2000 engagements. The Sports Expo photo and favourite club competitions received more than 400 entries in total and the Sports Expo web page received more than 4000 visitors.

Thank you to our amazing sponsors for the 2021 event - Grant Broadcasters, Great Barrier Reef Arena (Harrup Park Country Club) and Wests Tigers Leagues Club.
