First ever Primex People’s Day offers free entry to Northern Rivers locals

As Norco Primex 2022 gears up to be the biggest event in years, organisers have revealed Northern Rivers residents will be able to attend for free on opening day.

The first ever People’s Day will be held on Thursday, May 19, with tickets available online.

Primex director Bruce Wright said after the tragic effects of the floods, this was an opportunity to come together in a positive environment, relax with family and friends, and heal as a community.

“We know many of the businesses who are our exhibitors and friends have experienced heartache because of these floods,” he said.

“However, the message from them is very clear – Primex has to go ahead as a celebration, and a means for these businesses to relaunch and rebuild by engaging with their customers.

“We know how important Primex is for our farming and rural communities, but also the dedicated and resilient companies and family businesses who operate, supply, and deliver throughout the North Coast every day of the year.”

New features, events and attractions at Primex will reinforce all the amazing things we know and love about the Northern Rivers. This includes the new Nourish Food Fest, which will showcase the region’s world-class food and beverage industry.

Primex 2022 will have about 400 exhibitors and is expected to attract 30,000 visitors over three days from May 19-21, injecting an estimated $5 million into the local economy.
