With Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) set to celebrate its 70th Anniversary this year, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your ticket or to treat that special someone in your life. Returning to the Genting Arena, Birmingham’s NEC this year from 3rd – 7th October, audiences can be inspired by world-class International Showjumping along with an exciting line up of national Showing and Showjumping Championships and an energising array of equestrian entertainment.
Hospitality at HOYS is renowned for being an exquisite experience and in the words of Jeff Osborne, Managing Director of Osborne Refrigerators Ltd one of the Show’s sponsors; “There is no better way to enjoy the Horse of the Year Show than being wined and dined with the best of equestrian entertainment going on in front of you.” With our elegant tiered suite, HOYS offers a perfectly-refined hospitality ringside dining experience, blending sporting excellence and contemporary entertainment with outstanding cuisine.
For 2018, HOYS has a new daytime hospitality offering which has been introduced with the intention of providing a more rounded experience for daytime guests to enjoy the entertainment in the Andrews Bowen International Arena, whilst enjoying a relaxed and friendly food offering. Breakfast pastries along with complimentary tea and coffee will be available upon arrival, followed shortly after by a sit down two-course lunch. Later in the day an afternoon tea will be served consisting of sandwiches, scones and cake.
The evening hospitality will continue to be the most sophisticated ticket package which Horse of the Year Show offers, with a black tie dress code (Fri-Sun) and VIP service to boot. Guests will be greeted with a drinks reception on arrival in the Lakeside Lounge before being escorted to their seats by one of the on-hand hostesses at the head of the Andrews Bowen International Arena. A three-course meal will then be served throughout the evening with guests having the option of a specially selected menu to choose from with coffee to follow.
