Royal Hobart Show
Planning for the 2019 Royal Hobart Show is now reaping benefits just two months out from the big event. The society welcomes back the Tasmanian Government to this year’s Show with a whole-of-government display. It’s a chance for showgoers to find out about government and agency services to the Tasmanian community.
The Show is also mounting a major food hub this year which will be located on the Show Village Lawn. Interest and bookings from food businesses is high. Show bags will be moving to the southern end of the Arena this year with the huge kennel section moving in to the HIT 100.9 Pavilion.
This is because some restricted demolition work will be occurring next to Bunnings in preparation for the building of the big Spotlight retail outlet on Showground land facing onto Howard Rd. New to the Show this year will be a children’s pageant, and the Society warmly welcomes a major new sponsor, First National Real Estate, which is partnering the society to bring some top acts to Tasmania, including a human cannon ball.
Also - and you heard it here first - a new Tasmanian electricity retailer to be called G-Power will be launched at the Show this year.
