Just returned from the Koi Pet and Garden Show at Fairfield Showground. There wasn't much media attention to the event and hence the lack of turn out even though it was on a beautiful Sunday in late Sydney's Autumn.
Koi fish and all other lovable pets that you could name were there at the show. From fish to bird and four legged friends. The event attract more of the participants than the Sydney residents. I was amazed at the amount of Koi fish on show.
Mostly the Japanese community were out in force. The KSA (Koi Society of Australia) organised the event and they lack the marketing department to promote the event. I'm sure more people will attend if there was advertised on visitnsw or visitsydney.
I took photos and videos of the event, so I got everything cover. Well almost, still not confidence with audio just as yet. Probably ask for an interview and make it a documentary type of video to share with everyone. Nowadays the people distribute the news worthy content and the media is in the entertainment business.
Stay tune for the videos but for now you can check out my Flicker album for more photos of the event.
