2018 COMMERCIAL EXHIBITOR PROSPECTUS “YMCA NSW had an overwhelmingly positive experience at the 2017 Sydney Royal Easter Show. As a first time exhibitor, there’s a lot of trust involved and we were really happy with what the organisers delivered. We engaged with around 150,000 people over the entire show and generated over 2,000 leads. It would normally take us more than a year to generate that many leads! The service from show staff was great. It was also quite a surprise (and an honour) to win the Best in Show for the Commercial Exhibitor Awards. I can definitely recommend the Sydney Royal Easter Show for any organisation wanting to raise its profile with a specific audience.” “The Sydney Royal Easter Show is the largest and most exciting Show in our calendar year.

Every year we launch a new product, and after 15 years of exhibiting it still gives us nervous butterflies on opening day.

With our biggest stand to date, greatest number of tea ladies to serve with a sparkly smile, tea pots on heads and lashes that flash, 2017 was our biggest show ever. We love the Show, we love our loyal customers and love meeting new ones every year. We are eager to surprise and delight our customers at the 2018 Show.” HEAR FROM A SELECTION OF OUR EXHIBITORS YMCA TEA TONIC
