Dear valued Exhibitor
Please find below the Exhibitor information for the 2018 Hawke’s Bay Royal A&P Show. There have been many significant changes to the 2018 Hawke’s Bay Royal A&P Show. We are excited to advise that we are returning to a three-day Show, Wednesday Thursday and Friday. We trailed the 2-day night show last year and from the amount of feedback received have moved back to what we know best.
Staff changes – Sally Jackson has been appointed the new General Manager for the Hawke’s Bay A&P Society, Hillary Riches (some of you may know already) will be leading all the events for the Society assisted by Di Roadley and Kyla Holt. Kyla will be your point of contact for bookings and information. The team are focused this year to deliver a really good fun A&P show. To do this we are going back to basics, our extensive marketing and entertainment plan will be based around traditional A&P values including but not limited to family fun day out, urban meets country, education, and animals.
Cost’s – It’s not often that cost’s come down! we are pleased to announce that we have taken on board feed-back and reduced site fees across all sites as well as gate entry prices. This we believe is twofold, less cost through the gate means more patronage and cheaper site costs means more exhibitors. Everyone wins!
