In light of updated advice from health authorities about the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and last week’s announcement to ban mass gatherings over 500 people, it is with a heavy heart that the organisers of the Good Food & Wine Show announce that they will be postponing the Melbourne, Sydney and Perth Shows which were scheduled to take place in May, June and August.
“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, however our primary concern is always the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, and the responsibility we feel towards our exhibitors and partners. said Event Director, Claire Back,
Despite the disappointment we know all our stakeholders and visitors will feel, we want them to know that we are fully committed to delivering successful events later in the year for the industry we love and have confirmed our new dates with the venues for Sydney and Melbourne and are in negotiations with the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre to find revised dates for our Perth show later this year, which will be communicated as soon as we have these.”
- Melbourne: Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre: 25 –27 September 2020
- Sydney: ICC Sydney: 9–11 October 2020.
- Perth: Still in negotiations with the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre to find revised dates for our Perth show later this year, which will be communicated as soon as we have these.
- Brisbane: Brisbane Good Food & Wine Show will remain on the dates of 23–25 October 2020 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Tickets for the Melbourne and Sydney Shows have now been put on hold and can no longer be purchased at this time. Once tickets are on sale for the new dates, the Good Food & Wine Show will notify subscribers by email. All tickets already purchased will be automatically valid for the new shows and ticket holders have been contacted by email.
The Good Food & Wine Show had a great line-up of Australian talent confirmed for the Melbourne and Sydney Shows this year, including Matt Moran, Miguel Maestre, Manu Feildel, Andy Allen and Darren Robertson. The organisers are working closely with the talent management to secure them for the new dates
