We have been running equestrian events in the UK for over 20 years, starting Bede Events in 2003 with the aim of increasing the appeal of the sport to a wider market, including riders, sponsors and the general public. After 13 years we now have an exciting portfolio of events reaching from London to Edinburgh, and from BE 80 to International 3* level.
We are continually working with stakeholders in the sport to develop ideas and today pride ourselves as leaders in both innovation and quality. Our most recent development has been the introduction of live scoring, a facility that has revolutionised how the sport can be followed in this country and beyond.
In 2016 we have 9 events across the season, within which a host of opportunities can be offered to assist with promotion, advertising, product exposure, hospitality and more. With regular, sustained access to the sport throughout the season we can work with you to deliver your message to all levels of the sport.
We interact with over 6000 owners and riders, 40,000+ spectators and an army of volunteers, and this is only on event days during the season. Our reach through social media and the internet is far wider – 13,000,000+ yearly visits to our web site, a monthly Facebook reach of over 70,000 and regular twitter views of in excess of 65,000. This year we have seen a significant public attendance growth at our large events of over 35%.
