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.

We run the incredibly successful Running Show UK and USA, The National Snow Show, The National Outdoor Expo and The National Cycle Show

The National Equine Show is built on 3 strategic pillars:

RETAIL

  • A range of products and brands for consumers to purchase to suit all budgets and disciplines
  • Brands partnering with retail to boost at show bike / accessory sales
  • A very clear marketing message that the show exists as an immersive retail experience
ACCESSIBILITY
  • 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
  • The show includes all levels of products and bike brands from entry to elite
EDUCATION/INSPIRATION
  • Attendees discover all the latest brands & products
  • We promote the array of benefits that being a cyclist, at any level, has to offer
  • Becoming a better cyclist, in whatever way ‘better’ means to each of our visitors. This could be faster, safer or more proficient
  • Working with the brands that work with us, we broadcast athletes stories, tales of endurance and inspirational content to motivate our visitors

EQUALITY & EQUITY

We believe in fairness, equity and above all values diversity in all dealings with our stakeholders, partners and employees

We aim to provide an accessible event, delivered in a way that respects the needs of each individual and does not exclude anyone because we are committed to eliminating discrimination on the basis of gender, age, disability, race, religion, sexuality or social class. By demonstrating these beliefs in everything we do, we'll build an event for the quine community that is rich, diverse and reflective of our beautiful sport and all its participants.

We understand that equality is not about treating everyone the same, it is about ensuring that access to opportunities are available to all by taking account of people’s differing needs and capabilities. And we know diversity is about recognising and valuing differences through inclusion, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial origin, religion, belief, sexual orientation, commitments outside work, language,  perspectives, opinions and person values.

The National Equine Show is working with all of its partners to work towards developing a show that is fully representative of the equine community it serves. We're also opening up an Ambassador programme that is open to all regardless of status or social media following, read about our Ambassador programme here
