The Hobart Show is the largest of several shows organised by the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania. It is a major four day event held each year at the Royal Hobart Showground in Glenorchy, Tasmania, Australia.
Attracting thousands of visitors each year, the show provides a variety of attractions including agricultural exhibits, carnival rides, sideshow activities and live entertainment. It should be noted a “show” in this context refers to a trade fair with rural endeavours like livestock judging and wood chopping competitors, adjacent carnival attractions like rides.
Due to significant growth in website content the interface underwent a revision to include hyperlinks in the Main Navigation to the Showbags webpage and Education section.
The homepage also enjoyed an upgrade with the addition of a feature slideshow to highlight important content in a more prominent manner. This was effective in reducing the “cluttered box” problem the homepage suffered during 2012 and made the homepage more presentable and intuitive to navigate.
