Sydney Showground becomes Quayclean’s next big challenge

Sydney Showground becomes Quayclean’s next big challenge
October 8, 2019

Venue cleaning experts Quayclean has secured a multi-year contract with Royal Agricultural Society of NSW, incorporating Sydney Showground and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

The RAS - a not-for-profit corporation focused on supporting sustainable Australian agriculture, engaging with the community through education, events and world class venues - stages over 100 annual events at its various stadia, halls, pavilions and other indoor facilities across the precinct.

These include include GIANTS Stadium, home ground to the GWS Giants AFL team, and the Sydney Thunder Big Bash League cricket team.

Announcing Quayclean’s contract win, Sydney Showground Chief Operating Officer, Darryl Jeffrey stated “Quayclean was selected from a quality group of tenderers. Their extensive experience within major public venues, leadership and reference points within the industry were first class and on this basis were awarded the tender to work in partnership with the Sydney Showground.”

More than 900,000 people attended the 12-day Royal Easter Show last year and Quayclean Chief Executive, Mark Piwkowski, said it will be the company’s biggest single 24/7 event since the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Piwkowski advised “Quayclean thrives on delivering cleaning and presentation services for major events and the Sydney Showground has a calendar of annual attractions which excites and motivates our staff.

“We will be using and further developing systems, technologies and resources that optimise and deploy labour and equipment in the most efficient manner.”

The contract will attract local employment for over 250 casual and permanent staff at its peak.

Quayclean’s contract with the Sydney Showground further extends its working relationship with sites within Sydney Olympic Park including the Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre, Hockey and Athletic Centres, Sydney Olympic Park domain areas and the Quaycentre.

Quayclean also manages cleaning and presentation services for the Sydney Opera House, Australia’s number one tourist destination, which welcomes more than 8.2 million visitors a year and hosts 1,800 performances per year.
