Attending a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival has definitely been on my bucket list for a few years now and it really didn't disappoint.

It was my pleasure to plan, recruit and deliver Event Workforce Group staff as Uber Brand Ambassadors over the four days at the 2018 Spring Racing Carnival.

All events require careful planning on how spectators will get into the event, and when it is over how they will leave. Uber successfully re-designed the travel experience in 2018 providing a five-star service to both the drivers and the 300 000 spectators that choose to travel with Uber.

4 days

300 000+ Punters

Three Uber Bays

272 Staffed Shifts

Over 100 EWG staff members

A job very well done by all involved!

During the ¼ time break, three Superboots that have qualified from the regular season will each have two attempts to kick the longest barrel. 

The longest kick will win their way through to the Grand Final, with the winner on the grand final day taking home $2,500 for themselves, $5,000 for their local football club and a punting experience of a lifetime in the USA.
