The decision by the Expo management to set a new date for the event was taken after a detailed review of potential COVID-19 public health risks.

"These risks were assessed in conjunction with continual monitoring of the advice provided by the New South Wales government and New South Wales health that would enable us to fully comply with public health orders, and to protect the health and well-being of our exhibitors and visitors,'' Expo manager Marti Zivkovich says.

Another key factor in the decision to defer was the complexities faced by sponsors and exhibitors for effective planning of marketing campaigns, logistics, and personnel resources.

Also considered was the recent activity with border closures and strengthening of travel restrictions that have the potential to severely disrupt the number of interstate exhibitors and visitors able to attend the National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo.

"Our current experience in working with government authorities, together with our comprehensive COVID-19 safety plan and risk management processes makes us well-placed to stage a safe and highly successful Expo in April 2021.

"We are extremely pleased with the enthusiastic support we have received from exhibitors for the new venue of the Sydney Dragway at Eastern Creek from regular exhibitors. With   85 percent of sites pre-sold, the 2021 Expo is shaping up to be a great success.

"I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our wonderful sponsors, exhibitors, and suppliers for their support, patience and understanding in the time we have taken to make this decision", Marti added.
