Organisers have made the call to postpone the Norco Primex Field Days to September, due to on-going COVID-19 restrictions, and will instead run a digital event over May and June to take advantage of the Federal Government's instant asset write-off stimulus.
Primex owner Bruce Wright said he had to modify and rethink how to go about the business as a result of the pandemic, and that included postponing the Casino based field days.
"As a result the Primex Online Business Hub, a first for any field days event, will run through May and June and can be basically described as a 'virtual expo' that is designed to support all our stakeholders," he said.
Mr Wright said while organisers were still committed to running an event in September, pending health advice, the decided a virtual expo would allow farmers to take advantage of the instant-asset write-off's before end of financial year.
"This is so much more than just an offer to shop online," he said.
"For the past couple of years Primex has worked with Map Your Show. Together we have developed an online portal that is perfect for expo exhibitors and visitors.
"The one site showcases all the exhibitors and what they have to offer and then allows 'visitors' to take a virtual tour of the expo and buy or make inquiries.
"It has proven extremely successful at the past two Primex's and so, in the wake of COVID- 19, we have decided to enhance it and launch it as a stand-alone event for May and June."
