QUEENSLAND AG SHOWS
Queensland Ag Shows is the peak body for the Agricultural Show Societies in Queensland. We were set up with the aim to promote and protect the general interests of Show Societies so they can continue to put on safe events and increase community wellbeing. Today we offer a range of services, competitions, education and information to help Show Societies run thriving, well-resourced and well-governed Agricultural Shows.
BOARD of DIRECTORS – DELEGATES
The Queensland Ag Show Board of Directors consists of representatives (Delegates) from each of the Sub-Chambers that make up Queensland Ag Shows. These Delegates are appointed by the Sub-Chambers. The Delegates once appointed to the Board represent the interests of all Members. The number of Delegates representing a Sub-Chamber is based on the number of Shows that make up that Sub-Chamber. Each Sub-Chamber is represented by one Delegate with an additional Delegate where a Sub-Chamber represents 14 or more Shows. Delegates are appointed for a 1 year term but may serve multiple terms.

ABOUT AGRICULTURAL SHOWS
SOCIAL & ECONOMIC BENEFITS
Agricultural Shows have become multifaceted community events displaying a lively mix of competitions and demonstrations; displays of farming and commercial goods; arts and crafts; educational information; entertainment, sideshows and amusement rides.
Research has found that the social and economic benefits for Australia are significant, with at least $9.6 million dollars of economic benefits and a significant amount of social benefits due to volunteerism and the educational, competitive and cultural experiences they provide. The economic and social benefits are evident that the industry should continue to be supported and promoted.
