Queensland Ag Shows
QCAS, known as Queensland Ag Shows, is a peak body for the Agricultural Show Societies in Queensland. We were set up with the aim to promote and protect the general interests of Show Societies so they can continue to put on safe events and increase community wellbeing. Today we offer a range of services, competitions, education and information to help Show Societies run thriving, well-resourced and well-governed Agricultural Shows.

Social & Economic Benefits
Agricultural Shows have become multifaceted community events displaying a lively mix of competitions and demonstrations; displays of farming and commercial goods; arts and crafts; educational information; entertainment, sideshows and amusement rides.
Research has found that the social and economic benefits for Australia are significant, with at least $9.6 million dollars of economic benefits and a significant amount of social benefits due to volunteerism and the educational, competitive and cultural experiences they provide. The economic and social benefits are evident that the industry should continue to be supported and promoted.
