Primex reschedules for November

Presented by

A major agricultural event – the Norco Primex Field Days in New South Wales – will be held later this year after they were postponed due to the impact of floods

Norco Primex Field Days has announced revised dates of November 10-12 for this year’s edition of the agricultural expo.

Originally scheduled for May 19-21, organisers decided earlier this month to postpone the event due to floods and ongoing adverse weather conditions affecting Casino and surrounding parts of New South Wales.


Primex will now be held in November

Event director Bruce Wright says the new dates were selected after extensive consultation across a range of exhibitor and stakeholder sectors, while also taking other field days and event calendars into consideration.

"We have taken the time to seek advice about suitable dates with a broad section of our stakeholders, and also sought feedback to maximise the opportunities and benefits the event and its exhibitors can provide," he says.

"We also hope to minimise any impacts to other functions and events scheduled throughout the region at this time.

"The indication from stakeholders suggests there are no other events that would be directly affected by this decision, and that the region would, in fact, benefit from the additional visitors travelling here for Primex and the Northern Rivers’ extensive destination experiences."

Wright says Primex is important to the region and more than 400 businesses benefit from the event being held.

His goal is to achieve full capacity and end 2022 with an event that will showcase and support the local community and its primary industries.

"Almost $5 million will be injected immediately into the region's economy, and we expect more than $47 million in sales generated by the event over the three days," he says.

"With many businesses, farmers, regional communities, charities, and support groups reliant on the delivery of a successful Primex, we are looking forward to improved weather conditions and enhanced development of the event programs and exhibitor participation."

Norco Primex 2022 will be held at the Richmond Valley Events Centre at Casino between November 10-12.
