BETA (British Equestrian Trade Association) International, said it is recording its highest bookings for its show since 2008.

The show, which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 17-19 February, has already had an increase in the number of new and long-standing exhibitors, with some taking larger stands than previous years.

Claire Thomas, organiser of BETA International said: “We are feeling very positive about the high level of exhibitor applications we are receiving.

“Figures are up on those of the same time last year and at their highest for four years. This is a wonderful endorsement of the trade fair and a strong indication of its strength, moving forwards to 2013.”

Already, 157 companies have signed up to exhibit in 2013 which is 17 more than last year.

Companies that have booked benefit from savings on their stand costs with BETA International’s popular Prompt Payment Rebate Scheme, introduced to support exhibitors by helping them save money.

The initiative ends on 1 October by which time companies need to pay a 10 per cent deposit, followed by the balance due before 7 December. In return, exhibitors receive a 5 per cent rebate on the net stand price, which is paid in April next year.
