Canterbury Agricultural Park, the home of the Canterbury A&P Show, is located in the south-west of Christchurch, alongside the recently upgraded Southern Motorway. The Park is a 42 hectare, purpose built Show facility situated 10 kilometres from Christchurch International Airport. Due to the increasing popularity of the Show and plans for expansion, the Canterbury A&P Show moved to the new Showgrounds in 1997.
During Showtime the public can access the Showgrounds by a special, direct bus service. There is also ample free parking available for Showgoers including a free car park shuttle service to the turnstiles.
Site options include themed feature pavilions and outdoor locations for the effective promotion of your products/services. New and continually improving feature pavilions are testament to industry and public demand. A detailed description of the various site options is included in the Trade Exhibitors Information Pack.
