AusCham, is delighted to confirm that this year’s “Saigon Cup” will be officially rebadged as the Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner 2015.

The 2015 Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner will be held on Saturday, 24 October 2015 from 6pm at the Reverie Hotel, District 1, HCMC.

The name change comes with the full blessing of the Melbourne Cup’s owners, the Victorian Racing Club (VRC).

In addition, the VRC has given AusCham exclusive access and use of official images and videos from the Melbourne Cup (eg, see the VRC’s official 2015 TVC below). The VRC is also offering some additional forms of support.

AusCham’s Executive Director, Phil Johns, stated that the recognition and support of the VRC was outstanding and he thanked the Club most sincerely.

“Last year, 2014, AusCham set out to create and lay the foundations of an iconic Australian tradition in Vietnam. Now, we are only in Year No. 2…”

Johns also noted that Official Race Broadcaster for the Melbourne Cup, Greg Miles, has confirmed that he would like to support our 2015 event. Miles, who called his 34th Melbourne Cup last year, forwarded a video message for attendees at the Inaugural Saigon Cup.

Please Note: For the avoidance of doubt, there is no formal relationship between AusCham and the Victorian Racing Club and its Melbourne Cup. The Saigon Melbourne Cup Carnival Dinner is entirely a 100 per cent AusCham event.
