The principles and considerations outlined in the following publication were compiled from consultation
with member Show Societies and through resources and collaboration with the International
Association of Fairs and Expos (IAFE) and in particular the State and Provincial Associations Group and
their member affiliates. This also included other stakeholders in Agricultural Shows and in particular the
Showmen’s Guild of Australasia and the Australian Axeman’s Association, and current Approved
Industry COVIDSafe Plans. They are designed to provide approaches for you to follow as you reopen
your Show or Showgrounds in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not all of these approaches will
apply to your operation or facility type; however, the information outlined is intended to help you
identify the measures that will apply best for your Show or Showground. The measures focus on
medical science and operational expertise rather than general perceptions.
