Equitour Denmark, a Total Experience
The CDIO Uggerhalne provides plenty of side entertainment with a music festival, a classic cars auction, the Nordic International Sales of top quality foals, and much more.
"With Equitour Denmark our goal is to create world-class and innovative equestrian events," said Andreas Helgstrand. "We are not interested in creating traditional shows, but experiences that are built upon a sporting event with many side events that includes the entire family – regardless of gender and age. We believe that equestrian sport in Denmark possess a huge untapped potential with great growth opportunities. Having experiences as the focal point for these events, we will create a whole new way to explore equestrian shows."
Sponsorship and VIP Hospitality
Equitour Aalborg was held for the first time in 2017 and thinking of the large number of side events it was much more than a traditional equestrian event. Besides world-class dressage and jumping, Equitour Denmark is offering experiences that appeal to both horse enthusiasts, families seeking extraordinary experiences as well as the local area.
The show not only focuses on creating new events every year, they also stick to what people love. The exclusive foal auction, Nordic International Sales which is followed by a after party, Helgstrand Dressage’s extraordinary stallion show and kids day with lots of activities, workshops and entertainment for the entire family take place every year. Alongside many activities there is a huge exhibition area, that among others include equestrian equipment as well as exhibitions with cars, trailers and hors trucks, a food market and a la carte restaurant.
If you want to approach a passionate and highly-motivated audience who emphasise quality or do business around Aalborg, a sponsorship of Equitour Aalborg and Equitour DM is definitely something that will boost your business. You can also book a VIP Table or seat and experience outstanding hospitality while sitting in the front row to watch the competition unfold.
