About Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner 2015

In 2015, the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam will  lock in the successes of last year, our event’s foundation year, and continue to build a major annual event that:

  • Celebrates Australia
  • Is about business; and
  • Is inclusive of all who have an interest in Australia, including Australian Alumni.
  • Is a massive amount of fun

 

The Melbourne Cup meets the above criteria:

  • It is an iconic, world class, Australian event.
  • It attracts major sponsors and business people who fly in from around Australia, Asia and the world to entertain their key stakeholders in the famous Birdcage.
  • It appeals to an international audience: In 2013, 11 of the 24 horse were-trained overseas while 19 of the runners were bred in Europe. In each of the previous four years, the Cup has been won by international horses – twice from Ireland as well as singles from the USA and France. This year, horses will arrive from New Zealand, France, Great Britain, Ireland, USA, Germany and Japan.
  • As an iconic Australian event, the Melbourne Cup can be used as a cultural hook to draw Vietnamese who have lived and studied in Australia closer to AusCham (this year, 25,000 Vietnamese are studying in Australia).

And so, in our launch year of 2014, the Year of the Horse, AusCham gave the Melbourne Cup a ‘Saigon Spin’ and we launched the Saigon Cup. This year, with the full blessing of the Victorian Racing Club, we introduce the Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner. This year, we shift from the afternoon time slot to the evening.

The Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner 2015 will also bring together Australians and people with a business interest in Australia – which will encourage the development of business opportunities and support.

 

The Melbourne Cup will be raced on Tuesday, 3 November 2015 – and this event is on Saturday, 24 October??

Correct. Unfortunately, with the Tuesday being a work day over here in Vietnam, it is not viable to host a major event on this day. So, the Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner 2015 on Saturday, 24 October 2015. (The Saturday immediately prior to the Melbourne Cup is Halloween (massive day in Vietnam) and the final of the Rugby World Cup).
