Due to increased public concern, to protect the health and safety of judges and in response to the unpredictability of the current public health emergency our nation is facing, the 2020 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show is cancelled.
The KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show has a long and proud history of recognising the best of Australian Wine and it is with great disappointment that we have cancelled the 2020 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show for the first time since World War II.
The RAS has not been sheltered from COVID-19, with the current Government Order under the Public Health Act to ban mass gatherings forcing not only the cancellation of the 2020 Show but the cancellation of all other major events to be held at Sydney Showground in the coming months.
The financial impact on the Australian events industry and the RAS is significant.
To ensure the future of the RAS, we will be closing our doors temporarily from April 16 for the next few months to get back on our feet again.
The RAS has been representing rural Australia since 1822, we take great pride in and one that we will continue to do for many years to come.
We appreciate your on-going support and look forward to an even bigger and better 2021 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show.
If you have any further questions regarding the cancellation of the 2020 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show please email [email protected].
