2nd & 3rd August 2021
With great regret and following careful consideration, the Hamilton P & A Society Executive have decided to cancel this year’s, Sheep Connect ‘Trade’ exhibits.
Sheep Connect 2021, a three-piece event, was set to be an exciting expo full of trade, conference and sales whilst adhering to COVID Safe regulations.
With that in mind, and the recent lockdowns in NSW and Victoria, tightened Covid Safe restrictions and the rising number of Delta Strain transmissions it was decided to cancel the trade exhibits. In doing so, The Hamilton P & A Society aim to ensure the safety of the Greater Hamilton community and our exhibitors.
All trade exhibitors will receive a full refund. Please bear with us whilst we work on administering refunds. We hope to do this as swiftly as possible. The decision to fully refund all our trade exhibits does not come without a great expense to the P & A Society but we understand many businesses are experiencing financial stress. The P & A Society would like to support the businesses which have supported them over many decades. Expect to receive an email from us this week relating to your refund.
The Sheep Connect ‘Conference’ will be postponed with the new date to be announced in coming weeks. Our very generous conference sponsors will be contacted this week to discuss the postponed event. We will also contact all delegates who have made a booking in relation to the date change.
Our main stay event for more than 40 years, the ‘Ram Sale’ will continue in a digital format, on Tuesday August 3, 2021. Again, we will be in touch with all vendors this week regards the changes to the sale.
We are incredibly disappointed to deliver this news. Unfortunately, the COVID situation left us with no alternative. Our gate program is online at www.hamiltonshowgrounds.com.au and we encourage those that were planning on visiting Sheep Connect to hop online and support our traders if possible. We would like to thank you for your support this year and endeavour to make Sheepvention (on August 1 and 2 in) 2022 our biggest event yet.
