AAA President Michelle Malt said South Australia was the clear choice for 2016. "It’s about quality and inspiration", she said. "Adelaide offers outstanding accessibility and facilities, and S.A. is home to some key leaders in our industry, who consistently achieve spectacular results in many arenas in our industry, including at the Nationals. It’s very exciting to be able to recognise and connect with this excellence by staging our 2016 premier event in S.A.”

South Australian AAA President Perry Wheeler said that his regional team had staged a number of previous national industry events, and was delighted with their 2016 appointment. “We’re straight into it, all working very hard to stage another world class industry Show this time around. We’ve got a really exciting, well-resourced and accessible venue in Globe Derby Park just 20 minutes north of the CBD, and our team have pulled together an action-packed calendar. I think everyone attending will be very, very happy”, he said.

With the charming and historic Globe Derby Park offering all the space, access and resources necessary to staging a first class event, and Australia’s finest livestock set to be on show, all members are encouraged to attend.
