ITV News presenter Alastair Stewart will be a guest of honour at the British Equestrian Trade Association’s (BETA) annual trade fair next year.

Alastair will be at BETA International to talk about his love of horses, hopes for the Olympics and his new role as British Showjumping ambassador on Sunday 19 February.

During the afternoon visitors will be also able to take part in question-and-answer sessions with Alastair.

“We are thrilled that Alastair has agreed to take part in the trade fair, which this year has a London 2012 theme,” said Claire Thomas, from BETA International.

“He has been a familiar face on television for many years and his work as a broadcaster iswell documented.

“Some people, however, may have been unaware of his mission to raise the profile of equestrian sport. I am sure Alastair’s discussion will be both informative and entertaining, and our visitors will enjoy hearing what he has to say.”

BETA International will take place at the NEC in Birmingham (19- 21 February 2012).
