The time has arrived for the Melbourne Cup Carnival – the world-renowned horseracing event that captures the attention of Australia each year. Communications Collective is proud to partner with The Asian Executive to bring you an exclusive guide to this years’ carnival, from fine dining to Fashions on the Field.
The Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is about more than horseracing. It has become a 156-year old social and cultural tradition which, over four days from October to November, captures the attention of the nation. The stakes are high, as one of the richest races – the Emirates Melbourne Cup – offers $6.25 million in prize money, drawing in world-class competitors from around the world. It has come to be one of the most highly-attended and important events on the social calendar in Australia, attended by the great and good from around the country and often from abroad.
Communications Collective director Genevieve Brannigan gives us a glimpse into the etiquette and highlights of the four-day affair.
