The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) promotes and celebrates agriculture through events which connect industry with consumers and ultimately aims to improve the quality and increase demand for Victorian agricultural produce.

The RASV is a member based organisation that has a proud history of providing industry with valuable platforms to advance excellence in agriculture, primarily through conducting consistent benchmarking and high calibre award programs and events.

These award programs and events provide those with a direct involvement in primary and secondary production, particularly in Victoria, with unique opportunities to improve industry standards, establish credibility and provide market differentiation.

The Royal Melbourne Show, Victoria’s largest annual community event conducted by the RASV, provides industry with opportunities to engage and connect annually with half a million consumers over 12 days and build their knowledge and understanding of the vital role agriculture plays in everyday life.

Furthermore, the RASV manages Melbourne Showgrounds, Victoria’s largest and most versatile venue for trade shows, exhibitions and events.
