Events and tourism are interwoven elements that have an important influence on the development and promotion of a destination. Tourism events are still one industry that has a multiplier effect on destinations until 2019. Since World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 a Pandemic in 2020, events have become the main suspect in the virus's spread because they try to draw in big numbers of people in one event. The purpose of this research is to look into various events held in Bali during the pandemic, the readiness of destinations in preparing for events in the new normal age, and the preferred event structure by the event stakeholder. A qualitative method was used, with in-depth interviews conducted with major event players in event sample regions in Bali, including Gianyar and Badung Regencies and the City of Denpasar Bali, aided by document reviews and literature studies. According to the findings, only Gianyar Regency and Denpasar City held events during the COVID-19 epidemic. The virtual and combination event models were implemented in Gianyar, while the City of Denpasar achieved a new milestone by hosting virtual events during COVID-19. No Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) exist for special events during the epidemic in Gianyar, Badung, or Denpasar. The event is still being held in accordance with the Health Protocol (CHSE), which was created by the central government and local governments through a decree issued by the Governor of Bali. The preferred event model is a hybrid model (Virtual Face-to-Face / VFF) in which it is carried out virtually as well as in person (face-to-face).
