The Society is dependent on the financial generosity and voluntary support of local businesses whose loyalty over many years has earned them the right to be proudly associated with the efforts and achievements of the Show. Local non-profit organisations are the beneficiaries of any funds generated by the show in excess of that income which is needed for the upkeep and maintenance of the property.
Members of the community are employed during the pre & post-show period providing additional income for local families where unemployment is unacceptably high. Furthermore local Tourism is supported as the Show attracts a modestly estimated 10,000 visitors to the area each year.
Our current Sponsors
We are very pleased to announce that Hobson & Co is our new Title Sponsor of the Bathurst Agricultural Show.
Hobson & Co have steep value and tradition within the Eastern Cape farming community – there name is synonymous with quality and good value for cattle farmers and their contribution to maintaining high standards with us is much appreciated.
The Society is honored to be further supported by the Eastern Cape Agricultural Show Association whose dedication to the preservation of agricultural show associations in the Eastern Cape is testament to the traditions of farming in South Africa. Their donation affords us the opportunity to further and improve the Society’s future aims.
We take this opportunity to appeal for sponsorship to assist with the costs involved in maintaining the facilities in order to preserve this age-old agricultural tradition of the Bathurst Show.
Our recent sponsors through the “Adopt A Building” concept are ReMax Estate Agency and Harcourt Estate Agency, Rotary and The Co-Op. Why not “adopt” your own building on our beautiful premises?
In return we offer the opportunity to advertise your organisation thus providing good exposure to a broad spectrum of the Eastern Province population through media exposure and the Show itself. In addition to the commercial benefit there is a further opportunity to be seen as a supporter of the vital agricultural contribution to South Africa.
Should you be interested in this offer please contact us to discuss a suitable option for your intended sponsorship. (We welcome all forms of sponsorship, not only financial, but in the form of prizes i.e. gifts and corporate items.)
