The Southern Hemisphere’s biggest equine event, EQUITANA, is returning to New Zealand shores this November hot off the back of the highly-successful 20th anniversary year in Australia, and right back into the heart of Auckland.
The inaugural EQUITANA Auckland in 2017 brought with it lots of learnings which the team has put into place, establishing new partnerships, extensively re-vamping the site floorplan, improving access and flow of foot traffic and of course, bringing the world’s biggest stars to the event.
Those top international stars are at the very heart of EQUITANA Auckland – they’re world-class clinicians, educators and exhibitors. Add that to a very slick and dedicated crew of volunteers and the management team behind this iconic event and you’ve really got something special. So while it is a true celebration of New Zealand’s equestrian industry it also brings that international flavour to keep local riders up with the very latest from offshore.
Never before has there been the opportunity to sample some of these top international brands alongside New Zealand’s best, all at your back door. In a world that is so digital, it’s a rarity to feel, touch and talk to someone about products like you can at EQUITANA… And it’s all there under one roof.
EQUITANA is a celebration of what makes the equestrian industry in New Zealand so unique with a line-up of stars and evening entertainment like nothing you’ve seen. This is all about New Zealand and those who are so passionate about all-things equestrian.
“We heard your feedback from EQUITANA Auckland in 2017 and it has made us stronger than ever. We’ve left no stone unturned for the return 2019 event. It will be our biggest trade event ever thanks to a more advanced and much-improved site set up – more trade stands and a chance to speak to the experts,” said Event Director Leasa Stephen.
“Auckland weather can throw everything it likes at us, but rest assured, EQUITANA Auckland is built to withstand the elements with a completely weather-proof venue. The all indoor education program and shopping activities gives our traders the best chance to release that new product, expand their marketplace, and improve their profitability”.
