New Location for Western States Horse Expo
We are really energized about the new programs, activities and events being incorporated into the Western States Horse Expo experience. We know you will be too, especially if you want to get your Brand in front of tens of thousands of highly motivated customers.
The new dates for the event are May 9-12, 2019. Yes, that means the event is four days in length. The new location is the Murieta Equestrian Center in Rancho Murieta, CA, which is about 30 minutes southeast from Sacramento, CA in the heart of horse country and the Sierra Foothills. The facility is the largest equine center in California and offers exceptional opportunities for Exhibitors, Clinicians, Competitors and Attendees to experience the Western States Horse Expo in amazing new ways. Being a privately owned horse focused facility provides us with a more open, “user friendly” environment in which to create new and exhilarating experiences that will benefit and attract everyone. After our most recent on-site planning meeting, we can say with confidence that the facility and the event itself will be unlike anything the industry as ever seen!
Some of the events being held during Western States Horse Expo that are sure to enhance the “draw” of the event are:
· The Magnificent 7 All-Around Stock Horse Championship is where the best reined cow-horses and riders in the sport gather together for two days of intense competition. The top seven teams will compete in the final round for cash, prizes and the honor of being the 2019 Magnificent 7 All-Around Stock Horse Champion.
· Equus Masters – Legacy brings together four internationally known Clinicians work with four untouched horses over three days of competition. Celebrity judges will help to select the 2019 Equus Masters Champion who will receive cash and prizes.
· Craig Cameron’s Extreme Cowboy Race brings together the very best teams to compete in three days of faced paced action as they face thirteen unique challenges, at speed, testing their partnership and horsemanship! With cash and points on the line, it is easy to see why this is the fasted growing equine sport around.
The longer duration of the Western States Horse Expo will allow for a greater potential to generate sales and profits. The new, cost-effective Exhibitor Options (which include a healthy Marketing/Social Media Awareness benefit) will help to reduce your up-front investment –booth packages start at just $700.00 - which is also really good for the bottom line. We also have ample outdoor space, should you require it, in our Rigs & Digs and The Ranch sections. We have also crafted the ability for our valued Exhibitors to secure their booth rate and size for the next two years! By being an Exhibitor at the 2019 Western States Horse Expo in May, your booth rate and size are secured until 2021. We even have an opportunity for you to get five (5) FREE days of exhibition as part of the Quinate Immersion Clinic Series. As you can tell already, this event is going to be something very special.
Response to these new programs has been amazing and we are already filling up the Mane Market Pavilion, the Mane Market Festival and the Mane Market Premium Plaza (FYI - only 20 x20 spaces in the Premium Plaza with Sheldon Feed as the anchor) much quicker than we anticipated, which is awesome. It also means that corners and “prime locations” will be scooped much faster than in years past. To be a part of the action, please contact me at 530-672-7490 Monday – Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM PST or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get you all the information you need to secure the best available spot for your business.
Looking forward to partnering up together in 2019. FYI: We have secured the dates for our Pomona event, which will happen on November 15-17, 2019 at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA.
