Welcome

The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) has been inspiring excellence for over 165 years.  

RASV promotes the development of and celebrates agriculture through events which connect industry with consumers and ultimately aims to improve the quality and increase demand for Victorian agricultural produce.

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 RASV, provides industry with opportunities to engage and connect annually with half a million consumers over 11 days and build their knowledge and understanding of the vital role agriculture plays in everyday life.

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