2023 Southern Equine Expo Sponsorship
Why Become a Sponsor?
History. We built our foundation by providing high quality clinics presented by nationally known horsemen, educational seminars, and hands-on demonstrations. The Southern Equine Expo is dedicated to improving the care of horses through the education of their owners. Horsemen and women from all backgrounds receive relevant information at the three-day Expo. Since our inception in 2013, the Southern Equine Expo has built a reputation of being a professional, informative, and entertaining event. Sponsor involvement continues to be important to our sustainability.
Sponsorship. To take full advantage of the marketing opportunities available in the months leading up to and during the event, we offer several sponsorship levels for your consideration. Sponsorships include booth space in the vendor area along with additional exposure on our website, through radio spots, billboard logo identification, and in print ads.
