The Food Show, due to be held in Christchurch from April 8 to 10, 2011, has been postponed until later in the year due to the tragic events of the February 22, earthquake.
The Food Show venue, CBS Canterbury Arena, has incurred only minor damage but has ceased operations until March 15. Organisers of The Food Show, North Port Events, will talk with the venue after that time to confirm new 2011 dates.
“We all feel deeply for the people and businesses of Christchurch as they struggle through this terrible disaster,” says North Port Events CEO Dona White. “While we completely understand that holding the show in April is not possible for so many reasons, we believe that staging it later in the year could offer the people of Christchurch a much-needed pick-me-up once the situation has stabilised”.
