About the RASC

Founded in 1957, the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth (RASC) is the voice of agriculture in the Commonwealth. RASC is a confederation of over 50 leading national and regional agricultural show societies, agricultural associations and research bodies working in 20 Commonwealth countries.


Each year RASC convenes an international conference so members of agricultural industries and national agricultural show societies can interact and learn from each other, while experiencing another country.


This year's conference will be hosted by the RNA and held in Brisbane. The RASC is expecting around 300 delegates from the United Kingdom, Canada, the USA, New Zealand and Australia to attend. Forty eight show societies across 21 countries will be represented.
