New facilities on track at Sydney Showground

News this week: This week, the Sydney Showground announced significant progress has been made on its planned new exhibition and event facilities.  The development will be funded by the Royal Agricultural Society – following a detailed procurement process.

The venue reported that contractual documentation is expected to be finalised in the coming week with expansion work to begin in late August at the closing of mining exhibition, AIMEX. The new facilities are scheduled for completion in February 2014.

Peter Thorpe, Sydney Showground’s general manager, confirmed, “Not only are we pleased with the progress of our expansion project but we have also committed significant financial resources to the upgrade of our existing facilities. I am also excited to announce that in the past weeks, Sydney Showground has secured a number of high profile events including Sydney Home Show, Mind Body & Spirit Festival and Australia’s premier IT conference and exhibition, CeBIT. We are extremely thrilled about these events choosing Sydney Showground as their home for the next three years.”
