Regrettably, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Angus Forum organising committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the World Angus Forum, originally scheduled to be conducted in April 2021.
In advising the cancellation, organising committee chair Mark Gubbins said given the uncertainty around the timing of the recovery from the pandemic, and the expected continued impact on international travel into 2021, the committee believed that it was best to postpone the event to a later date when the global Angus community could participate.
A decision has not yet been made on the timing of a rescheduled event and at this stage the World Angus Forum organising committee are exploring all options with regards to a revised date.
Angus Australia president Brad Gilmour said "we look forward to announcing a rescheduled date for the World Angus Forum in the coming months so that the global Angus community can still come together in Australia to celebrate an even better event than originally planned."
"Angus Australia is very appreciative of the hard work done by the World Angus Forum Organising Committee, and the ongoing support provided by the sponsors and Angus community in preparing for the Forum," Mr Gilmour said.
"We are committed and determined to reap the rewards from this effort by conducting a very memorable global event in the future when the impact of the pandemic has eased."
