China Horse Fair 2012, which will run from Nov 18-20, is set to transform Beijing into a global marketplace for the professional horse sports and leisure industries, with more than 130 exhibitors from 16 countries and regions.
Suppliers from European countries such as the Netherlands, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium and Switzerland will be on hand. They will be joined by other nations at the forefront of global horse sports and leisure including the United States, Australia and Argentina.
Since its inception, the fair has delivered a cosmopolitan environment, with more than 50 percent of its exhibitors coming from outside China.
It is no surprise that this year's fair will once again be the year's largest and most comprehensive trade event for China's professional horse sports and leisure industries. Leading suppliers such as Dutch Premium Horses, Equitrade, Henswoude, Horse Service International, Ismer Stud, MB Horse Trading and Vale Brothers will be exhibiting again and will be joined by new exhibitors such as Equi Air Shipping, Equine International Shipping, German Horse Industry Consulting, Martin Collins Enterprises, Michael Daly, Premium Horses and Horse Sport Ireland.
"The vast experience and knowledge of our industry experts, and the reputation of British-made equestrian goods - highly prized for their innovation, style, design, safety and value for money - is known throughout the world," said British Equestrian Trade Association executive director Claire Williams. "BETA is extremely pleased to be bringing such a diverse collection of companies to the fair and helping them to promote their excellent products and services to an exciting, new audience."
