RAS of NSW: The Show goes on

For 25 years, the Dentsu Creative Public Relations (DCPR) team  has managed the media and PR strategy for the Sydney Royal Easter Show (the Show), one of Australia’s biggest annual events.


In close collaboration with the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (the RAS), DCPR undertakes extensive planning and preparation for the Show. This includes strategy development, issues preparedness and media training for key spokespeople, coordinating pre-Show media events, media briefings, story development and logistics to create engaging media opportunities for journalists and drive value back to the RAS of NSW.

We work closely with all major media outlets, as well as rural and regional media across NSW, to deliver unique and engaging stories that tell the story of the Show, agricultural excellence and the people at the heart of rural Australia.

Our deep understanding of agriculture and the Show, coupled with our major metro and rural media connections, enables us to provide unrivalled strategic media planning and on the ground support to deliver outstanding coverage results and outcomes year on year.
