A New Home in Sydney for foodpro 2021

Jan 8, 2021

Running from 25th - 28th July 2021, foodpro is calling Sydney Showground home for the first time in next year, a "Covid Safe" venue approved by the NSW Government.

The world-class and award-winning Sydney Showground was established in 1998 as a purpose-built home for major events as part of the NSW Government’s multi-million dollar development for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games., It has since transformed and grown into a hub with a wide variety of accommodation, dining and entertaining options for visitors.

Sydney Showground is also the venue and event management business of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS), a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting excellence in agriculture. All profits from events held on the site are invested back into supporting Australian agriculture and rural communities.

We give a run down on the establishment so you can get familiar with the venue as you start planning for foodpro 2021.

The Sydney Showground is placed in the geographic heart of Sydney, surrounded by a number of great accommodation options.

Whether you are looking for budget or upscale, hotels around the venue are affordable, and all located within a 10 minute walk from the Sydney Showground, giving you more time to enjoy foodpro.
