2020 DOWERIN FIELD DAYS CANCELLED
“It’s with heavy heart’s that we announce that we will not be proceeding with the Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days in 2020.
In response to advice from federal authorities the current ban on events of 500+ attendees will not be reviewed until the end of June and is highly likely that this will still be in place for August.
The Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field days team were in contact with Field Days around Australia and working with federal authorities on the best call of action. The advice we received was to not proceed with this year’s event.
A priority for us is the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and volunteers. We are acting on recommendations from a national level. This has been an incredibly tough decision but the health and safety of those involved in our event and beyond, is of highest importance.”
The Dowerin Field Days itself is the largest and most widely recognised agricultural event in Western Australia. The Committee has built a strong reputation over its 54 year history, with the brand recognised throughout Australia and increasingly overseas, across rural, regional and metropolitan areas.
The Dowerin Field Days directly targets attendees from agricultural regions, attracting over 25,000 visitors each year. Recent studies have shown that over 70% of all attendees come from rural and regional areas and most own or run an agricultural related business. Around 7000 broad acre farmers attend the event each year and over half of all visitors stated their reason for attending was a strong interest in agricultural products and services.
