For those of our customers hoping to see us at the planned Hamilton Show, 9th - 11th October, please be advised that we have taken the difficult decision to withdraw from this years event.
As we are all aware - Greater Auckland remains at alert level two with active cases which developed in the community. The next review of alert levels for Auckland will not take place until the 5th October, just two days before we as an exhibitor need to be loading goods in to the Show for our display.
The short notice simply does not allow us to plan with certainty - both around the ability of our Auckland based staff to attend the show - but more importantly around the health and well being of our entire team.
In addition we have to weigh the chance to attend the show against the potential risk that should a case of Covid 19 be reported from the show - we as a business would most likely be required to shut down for 14 days - a situation which is totally untenable.
We remain supportive of the Hamilton event, its location and timing - but are unable to place our staff in a situation of risk - no matter how small that risk may be.
