Brett Looney

Brett Looney, Principal Solutions Architect, AWS

Brett started life in the IT industry far too long ago to remember; spent over a decade supporting enterprise and mid-market customers across Australia before joining iiNet to build their then fledgling ADSL network. After that, he partnered with a friend to build L7 Solutions, which was the largest locally owned IT company before being sold to Amcom in 2011. In 2015 Brett joined Amazon Web Services as a Solutions Architect – continuing the IT theme but into the world of cloud computing. At AWS, Brett is supporting and advising Australian and global enterprises and public sector customers in the adoption and best practices of using the cloud to deliver lower cost business services with greater agility. And he likes cats. And donuts. But don’t feed him caffeine.

AWS re:Invent re:Cap Health Measures

The health and safety of our customers, partners, and employees remains our top priority. The AWS re:Invent re:Cap will be run in accordance with all applicable Federal, State, or local law or public health orders in place at the time of the AWS re:Invent re:Cap.

We are continuing to actively monitor government guidelines and will implement all measures required at the time of the AWS re:Invent re:Cap. AWS can make revisions to the health measures outlined on this website at any time, including to comply with guidance from the Australian Government Department of Health, and other Federal, State, and local requirements. We note that this may include a requirement to show proof of vaccination to attend an event.

Re:Invent re:Cap Adelaide

The Re:Invent re:Cap in Adelaide will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The Adelaide Convention Centre will require all visitors to provide evidence that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The Adelaide Convention Centre will require all attendees to show their COVID-19 Digital Certificate on their smart device or provide personal photo identification and printed immunisation certificate. Any person with an official medical exemption will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result for the 72-hour period prior to seeking entry and full exemption details. Please read the Adelaide Convention Centre’s conditions of entry before visiting.

Contact Tracing

All badge holders at the AWS re:Invent re:Cap will be required to check-in at the venue, either through the  COVID SAfe or Safe WA applications (depending on the location of the AWS re:Invent re:Cap event you are attending).  If you do not have a smartphone or relevant application, you will be required to provide your name and contact details on the contact tracing register provided at the venue.


If required by Federal, State, or local law or public health orders, everyone will be required to wear a mask at the AWS re:Invent re:Cap, unless a valid exemption applies.

Masks will be acceptable if they are fitted face coverings that fit securely around the face and are designed to be worn over the nose and mouth to provide the wearers with protection against infection (e.g., a flat surgical mask, P2/N95 mask or a cloth face mask with three layers). Masks may be removed only while eating and drinking.

Personal protective equipment

AWS will make masks available for the AWS re:Invent re:Cap attendees who need them.  Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event space.

Before AWS re:Invent re:Cap

If you:

  • have received a positive COVID-19 test result;
  • have been identified as a close or casual contact by relevant authority; or
  • have attended a COVID-19 hotspot,

in the two weeks prior to the AWS re:Invent re:Cap, you will be required to present proof of a negative COVID-19 test result upon arrival at the AWS re:Invent re:Cap in order to gain entry.  If you obtain a positive COVID-19 test result, you will not be permitted to attend the event in person, but you can access material that will be presented at the AWS re:Invent re:Cap virtually by registering here for free.

We request that you access the material that will be presented at the AWS re:Invent re:Cap virtually by registering here for free instead of attending the AWS re:Invent re:Cap in-person if you are feeling unwell, have been tested, or if you have any symptoms of COVID-19.
