Cancelled 2020 National 4×4 Shows in Brisbane and Melbourne but organisers have set dates for 2021.

After careful consideration the organisers of the ‘National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expos’ have decided not to hold the scheduled shows for Brisbane and Melbourne in 2020, but they have announced dates for bigger and better shows when they return in 2021.

The National 4×4 Show in Brisbane is now scheduled to run from 19-21 March, 2021, while the Melbourne Show is scheduled to run from 20-22 August, 2021.

Back in March of this year, Unsealed 4X4 reported that the National 4X4 Show in Brisbane had been postponed, but organisers could not see a way to safely run the event in 2020.

In a media release, the event organisers – Exhibitions and Trade Fairs (ETF) –  stated, “While we are disappointed that we are unable to come together this year, our priority when planning these Shows is to create a world-class experience that celebrates the great outdoors in a safe environment.Cancelled National 4x4 Show

“In our best efforts to safely bring the 4×4 and outdoors community together this year, we explored a range of options. One of these was to move the Shows to later in the year. After monitoring the ever-evolving situation, there are many uncertainties still in place that impact our ability to deliver the experience that you have come to expect and deserve.

We believe that focusing on the future is the best option, so we are busy working on new and exciting initiatives that ensure we come back even stronger. We hope you will join us again then.”

ETF also encouraged show-goers to stay connected via its social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter, and by subscribing to its newsletter via its website.

For those who have already purchased tickets to the cancelled 2020 National 4×4 Shows, as well as exhibitors, ETF has stated that further information regarding the next course of action will be communicated via email.
