About the Organisers
WE ARE RACCOON MEDIA GROUP
Raccoon Media Group is an exciting and dynamic UK events business run by a group of exhibition and digital marketing experts. Over the last 13 years we’ve worked for most of the major event organisers and we’ve run hundreds of exhibitions and conferences in key locations all over the world.
We set up Raccoon Media Group because we wanted to create exhibitions that offer something new and different in special markets that we understand and that we love. We believe that great events are about community, fun, innovation and excitement and we are committed to offering the equine community you that with The National Equine Show.
The National Equine Show is built on 3 strategic pillars:
- A range of products and brands for consumers to purchase to suit all budgets and disciplines
- A very clear marketing message that the show exists as an immersive retail experience
- We have priced the tickets & built the event’s budget to not be reliant on ticket revenue, this means we are able to offer a high volume of complimentary tickets to lower & remove barriers to entry
- The show is located in Birmingham making it more accessible for more of the UK’s population
Education / Inspiration
- Attendees discover all the latest brands & products
- We promote the array of benefits within the equine world, at any level, has to offer
- Becoming a better rider, in whatever way ‘better’ means to each of our visitors.
- Working with the brands that work with us, we broadcast athletes stories and inspirational content to motivate our visitors
COMMITMENT TO BRITISH BUSINESS
One of our main corporate responsibility goals is to support British businesses and create the most sustainable event possible.
We will aim to use local suppliers where ever possible and partner with British businesses for all of show build, printing requirements, and in conjunction with the venue we will ensure food and beverages will be locally sourced.
