2021 event update
While we’ve had to adjust to a new way of living over the past months, our planning for Australia’s International Dairy Week 2021 has commenced. However, with current restrictions in place, we are progressing slowly.
We are respectful of the work that our government and health care workers are doing to keep us safe and we want to make sure that we can conduct International Dairy Week when it is legal, safe and feasible to do so for all of us – exhibitors, sponsors and the dairy enthusiast.
We appreciate you need to plan if the event is progressing so we will advise our decision about IDW 2021 by the week of 28 September 2020. Of course, if we are able to make a decision regarding the 2021 event before then, we will let you know.
Hold tight, look after each other and keep safe for now. We hope it won’t be long until we’re all back together for Australia’s International Dairy Week.
