Sydney Gluten Free Expo Postponed

Given the planned location of the Sydney Gluten Free Expo at Royal Randwick Racecourse, and being a health-based charity organisation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Sydney event in line with the Premier’s recommendations and to play our part in limiting any potential threat of spreading the virus.

 

Whilst this is an unfortunate situation and one not within our control, we believe it is the right decision to make given the circumstances, with the health and wellbeing of our attendees, staff and exhibitors being of utmost importance. We appreciate your support and understanding of our position.

 

Our Team have a contingency plan for this situation and will be working closely with all key stakeholders on the next steps for the Sydney Gluten Free Expo. 

 

Further information will be forthcoming as soon as possible to ticketholders regarding tickets and a potential new date for this event.   

We thank our sponsors, exhibitors, members and ticketholders for their understanding and continued support of Coeliac Australia and the Gluten Free Expo.

About

After a hiatus in 2020, Coeliac Australia is delighted to be working towards the return of the Gluten Free Expo in 2021! The Sydney Gluten Free Expo will be Coeliac Australia’s first physical event in Australia for over 12 months and the anticipation is building! This year will also mark the first time the event will be held at Royal Randwick Racecourse, the Sydney Expo’s new home for 2021.


The Gluten Free Expo is proudly bought to you by the experts in gluten free at Coeliac Australia and is the only dedicated gluten free event of its kind in NSW. Like other Coeliac Australia’s Gluten Free Expos, the Sydney event will offer a great opportunity to discover, taste and shop everything new in gluten free food as well as grab a bargain, with many show specials from exhibitors set to be on offer!

Coeliac Australia also welcomes Woolworths as Principal Sponsor. Exhibiting for the first time, the Woolworths stand will showcase their fantastic Free From Gluten range and brings a new exhibitor experience for visitors.

 
Look forward to visiting the Gluten Free Expo’s dedicated Education Stage where visitors can listen to expert dietitians and medical practitioners sharing the latest developments on coeliac disease management, research and diet. The Expo will also feature a range of gluten free street food and food truck vendors, a gluten free foodie’s heaven! Don’t forget to visit our team at the Coeliac Australia stand.

Modified sampling procedures will be introduced, however rest assured you will still be able to enjoy the tastes of the Expo with carefully presented, single-portion samples.
