BEEF 2021 Wrap Up
Posted on May 11th, 2021
With reports from Beef Australia stating that more than 115,000 people passed through the gates and 63 tonnes (2 semi-trailers) of beef being consumed, this year’s BEEF 2021 has been hailed as the biggest and best to date, and has well and truly secured Rockhampton a place on the map.
As the community continues to buzz from the excitement of this spectacular world-class event, the cogs are already in motion for the return of BEEF 2024 in another three years.
Capricorn Enterprise CEO, Mary Carroll extends congratulations to the BEEF 2021 team for their immense efforts in the lead up to and during the week-long event.
“Even without the international market in attendance this year, the numbers of visitors to the region was incredible,” Mary said. “The benefits of this massive event were not just seen on site, but across the entire region as we witnessed accommodation facilities booked to capacity, fuel stations, retailers and restaurants incredibly busy, and some visitors making the most of the beautiful weather and taking a trip to the Capricorn Coast or Keppel Islands.”
“We are so fortunate to have this event hosted in our region with people all over the country landing in Rockhampton to indulge in everything beef!” Mary said. “The government and community support seen across the past week has flow on effects for the region that will continue for many years to come.”
In addition to the celebrations, Beef Australia’s Chairman, Bryce Camm was named as the state’s 20th #eatqld Champion, acknowledging the fourth-generation cattleman’s devotion to Queensland’s beef industry. Queensland Government’s #eatqld campaign encourages the community to eat local, stay healthy and support jobs in the state’s agricultural sector. Read the full release here – Well done!
