As New South Wales heads towards a 70 per cent vaccination rate by October 11, Sydney Showground is preparing to resume operations and deliver events this side of Christmas following the release of the NSW Government’s ‘roadmap to recovery’.
With marks already on the board, the venue will again lead the charge bringing Expertise Events, Oz Comic-Con Homegrown to Sydney from December 4 – 5 after proving its ability to deliver outstanding events within challenging environments.
Gary Fitz-Roy, Managing Director of Expertise Events, said the venue understands organisers’ unique needs in this new environment.
“Sydney Showground get it; they focus on relationships and work with you to help bring your vision to life in this new world, they know the compliance aspects and work with sensible solutions to make sure everyone has a good experience. I love their can-do attitude,” Mr Fitz-Roy said.
Other events due to take place prior to Christmas include the Health, Wellness and Fitness Expo 2021, Sydney’s Annual Wedding Expo 2021, Disability Expo 2021 and the venue will welcoming back Sydney Thunder and the Big Bash League to Sydney Showground Stadium.
Paving the way for large-scale events back in April, the venue has demonstrated its capacity to run events within a COVID safe environment by delivering the largest ticketed event to take place in the world at the time, the Sydney Royal Easter Show and Australia’s largest consumer event, the Oz Comic-Con Pop-Up in March.
Darryl Jeffrey, Sydney Showground General Manager, says the venue has the unique ability to support organisers as they navigate the months ahead.
“We’ve seen an increase of enquiries since the NSW Government roadmap to recovery was announced, and I believe we will continue to see a number of shows, concerts and special events revealed in the coming weeks. The demand for events is there, we’ve been given the green light, and now it’s up to us to work with our clients and bring safe events back to Sydney,” Mr Jeffrey said
Of the grand order of folio leviathans, the Sperm Whale and the Right Whale are by far the most noteworthy. They are the only whales regularly hunted by man. To the Nantucketer, they present the two extremes of all the known varieties of the whale. As the external difference between them is mainly observable in their heads; and as a head of each is this moment hanging from the Pequod's side.
