With all the current developments around COVID-19, this piece of news shouldn’t come as a surprise as popular annual event the Rand Show has been confirmed as the latest big outing to be postponed. The organisers shared the below official statement from Craig Newman, CEO Johannesburg Expo Centre and Rand Show Director:
As one of this country’s longest running events, we’ve been through a lot, standing side by side with our fellow South Africans. We are an integral part of the community and its spirit. After listening to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address yesterday and in the best interests of our community, we have decided to postpone the show. The event will be rescheduled at a later stage and will be done in consensus with government.
The Rand Show would like to thank our partners, and all sponsors for their understanding
and continued support during this time. We believe this decision to be in the best interest of our nation.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the postponement but remain committed to hosting the show at a time when all South Africans can attend and enjoy the Rand Show, without any concern for their personal health or safety.
Should you be interested in following the latest developments around the Rand Show then feel free to check in here. We’ll of course also keep you posted as and when we hear more.
