As of Sunday 29 March, the Australian Government implemented more rigorous social distancing measures in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, such as further reducing the limit of people at all indoor and outdoor gatherings.
As a result of these measures and limitations on international and interstate travel; Nine Food Events has made the incredibly hard decision to cancel The Curated Plate in 2020.
COVID-19 has had a significant impact on everyone and it is a challenging and uncertain time for Australians including the tourism and hospitality industries.
The inaugural Curated Plate Festival was successfully held in August 2019. Nine Food Events will be working closely with partners Visit Sunshine Coast, Sunshine Coast Council and Tourism & Events Queensland to discuss planning for The Curated Plate in future years.
