Feedback from competitors, spectators and sponsors is excellent and our trade stands play a crucial role in creating the event atmosphere.
High Profile Event - Withington Horse Trials is one of the most demanding one-day events in the country. Over 1500 people are directly involved in this year's event and hundreds more members of the public will attend. Furthermore, we are oversubscribed every year. In 2008 we had to turn away 112 riders.
Targeted Marketing - over 1500 people are involved in the event. 72% of those live within a 75-mile radius of Cheltenham. Over 250 members of the public were attracted to the event last year with little sought after publicity. Continuing high profile public relations activity means many more publicity opportunities for 2018.
Affluent Attendees - 63% of competitors and 52% of spectators fall into the "AB" socio-economic group.
We do limit the number of stands within a particular category in order to balance choice and variety of offering on the one hand and ensuring that each trade stand can expect reasonable share of the income on the other. Furthermore, the secretary's tent and the score boards are situated at the far end of the trade stands area ensuring that all competitors must pass the trade stands in order to collect their numbers and see their scores.
