The ringside meeting room was a new addition to Stanthorpe Showgrounds in 2016 which enabled the final move from the tiny office in the Cairnsmoor Building in Maryland St, Stanthorpe. Now it is used on almost a weekly basis for the general committee and the subcommittees to conduct meetings at the showgrounds. The facility doubles as the headquarters for the Stanthorpe Pony Club with whom the Stanthorpe Agricultural Society has an ongoing lease.
