TUESDAY 17TH MARCH 2020
Great news! Following on from our previous communications in regards to the postponement of Fine Food New Zealand, we can now confirm the newly scheduled dates of June 13 – 15 2021, at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland.
We have worked in consultation with the venue, key stakeholders and other international organisers to secure dates that will work best for the industry as a whole.
We feel the generous lead time between now and June 2021 places the show well beyond what will likely be a recovery phase of COVID-19 for the wider economy. As we experienced with the launch of this event post GFC, Fine Food New Zealand proved a very effective platform for economic and sector recovery, filling the void left from that crisis – and Fine Food New Zealand 2021 will be no different!
As you are no doubt aware, the decision to postpone was made following the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday 16th March at 4pm, specifically advising that mass gatherings of over 500 people should cancel, which applies to this event.
The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff is, and will always be, our top priority. We are entirely supportive of the Government’s position, regardless of the importance of events to the wider economy.
With more than 80% of space already sold we are absolutely committed to delivering a highly successful Fine Food New Zealand on the newly scheduled dates on 13 – 15 June, 2021.
Thank you in advance for your continued support and understanding.
