This week our committee made the very difficult decision to cancel Botanical Bazaar for 2020. 
Over the last few months we have been continually mindful of the developing conditions and the impact that this may have on our event, our exhibitors and participants.  Unfortunately the announcement by Queensland’s Premier earlier this week that the border would remain closed for months rather than weeks severely limits our ability to stage a quality event.  With several of our key note speakers and many of our exhibitors coming from interstate, attendance limited to meet Covid-19 Event Guidelines and the possibility of further restrictions in the lead up to the event, the risk was too great.
Gold Coast Rotary is committed to growing this event and making it bigger and better in 2021, perhaps even 2 days.  The several hundred hours of planning and pre-event expenditures has not been wasted as our organising committee has learnt a great deal and forged a team ready and willing to stage Botanical Bazaar 2021.
