2021 APPA Roadshow Reduced to Mini Roadshow

It appears COVID-19 has once again tested our ability to deliver a full Roadshow in 2021.

In this past week, APPA has been contacting our NSW based exhibitors, negotiating with venues, monitoring the nationwide health situation and discussing the options available to us. The 2021 Roadshow will subsequently look a little different.

Although APPA cannot offer the full Roadshow due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have decided to forge ahead with a ‘Mini Roadshow’ (similar to the March Promotional Products Shows) that will include Brisbane and Melbourne only on the planned dates of Monday 30 August and Friday 3 September respectively.

The extended Sydney lockdown situation has forced APPA to make the difficult decision to cancel the Sydney, Adelaide and Perth legs of the show. Adelaide will now be incorporated in the March 2022 Roadshow schedule.

Brisbane Roadshow Monday August 30
Sydney Roadshow CANCELLED
Melbourne Roadshow Friday September 3
Adelaide Roadshow CANCELLED
Perth Roadshow CANCELLED

As we know, APPA's ability to deliver professional events and trade shows is subject to government rules and restrictions, and is hence beyond our control. With this in mind, APPA's decision regarding the Roadshow may be subject to change, so please ensure you regularly visit the APPA website and check your email inbox for any updates from APPA throughout the coming weeks.

As we continue to monitor the situation and stay positive, we strongly believe that in keeping our shows alive, we can all help the industry support each other, stay connected and be inspired.
