With the high-risk and uncertain nature of running large scale events in a Covid-19 climate, a difficult decision has been made to not proceed with the scheduled dates, 24-28 March 2021 for the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. With last year’s event being called off at the 11th hour, we are all very disappointed.
Towards the end of 2020, we had a great sense of optimism and were very much hoping everything would have returned to normal in time to stage this year’s event. However, a recent spike in interstate case numbers, border closures and other Covid-19 related restrictions has again added further uncertainty to the Covid-19 impact and presents an extremely challenging environment to deliver an event of this magnitude.
After carefully considering the interests of all our partners and visitor
s, we cannot proceed with any confidence to stage the event you all know and expect in March 2021. With so much planning and effort required to bring the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show to life, we have an obligation to make the decision sooner rather than later.
It cannot be under-estimated how important the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is to the horticultural industry – it is a platform for an entire industry and for the public to learn, be entertained and inspired. With that in mind, we are exploring alternative options and dates for a show in October 2021.
