Finally, after literally weeks of looking I have locked in a venue and date for the Sydney Swimming Show! The show will be held at The Concourse in Chatswood. The venue is going to be great because it can hold about 45 exhibition stands, which means lots of different swimming products, brands and services. Being in Chatswood it is easy to get to by public transport, plus the Westfield is opposite with 3 hour free parking.
The Swimming Show will be on Saturday and Sunday November 16th and 17th from 10am to 5pm. Giving you the chance to pop over, shop and listen to some fabulous speakers.
It took a lot of searching to find a venue that not only was big enough, but didn’t cost the earth. As the whole event is a fundraiser, the goal was to spend as little as possible on the mechanics of the show, so that as much as possible is donating to Ovarian Cancer Research. But as little as possible on the event doesn’t mean it will be cheap and nasty, it just means that I didn’t want to splash out the $25,000 per day that some of the venues were asking for!
The Concourse at Chatswood is right opposite the Westfield and just down the road from Chatswood Chase, making it easy to find and easy to visit. The venue that we have hired is downstairs (don’t worry there are lifts) and on one floor. The space will be set up with exhibition stands and a stage along with seats.
There will be speakers on stage throughout the day talking about swimming techniques, tips, swims and nutrition plus more. I would also like to hear from people who have done an unusual swim and would like to talk about it, the aim is to inspire people to get in the water! If you have any suggestions for speakers please let us know.
