SICAB, International P.R.E. Horse Fair
Once again, I am contacting you with information regarding a number of aspects regarding SICAB 2017, the International PRE Trade Fair and home of the 3rd World PRE Horse Championship.

This newsletter included preliminary information about the event, which we hope is of interest.  

The 27th edition of SICAB will be held from the 14th to the 19th of November at the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones (Fair Grounds and Convention Center) in Sevilla.

Annually, SICAB prepares an official catalog, where stud farms may include publicity.   This tool is very useful for guest at the venue.  The deadline to request publicity and to send in all originals is Saturday, October 16. Included herein is the request form for publicity; the rates are also provided for breeders, depending on whether or not they are members of ANCCE.  Remember that space for stud farm publicity is limited; if you are interested, please reserve now!

As was the case for previous years, breeder stands will be housed in Pavilion 1, next to the arena for mares. If you are interested in reserving exhibition space, you must formalize your reservation by filling out the form, depositing the reservation fee of six hundred euros (€600) into the Caja Rural del Sur account, with IBAN number: ES22 3187 0812 8010 9498 7227 – BIC: BCOEESMM187.  Remember that this is a non-refundable deposit, should you later cancel your stand reservation once the September 14th deadline has concluded.

When it comes to confirming and selection a location, priority is given to those stud farms having a stand at previous editions; requests are attended on a first-come-first-serve basis once payment has been made.   As of Friday, the 15th of September, breeders who had stand at previous editions but who have not made the corresponding reservation will forsake all priority rights and that space will be designated to another breeder without him/her having had a stand at a prior edition.  

The specification for set up, schedules and general usage are specified on the Breeder Contract Form, which will be sent in due course.  

Two-floor stands, or those elevated above the ground pay a 60% surcharge over the total fee for the stand.  The maximum ground area available per stand is eighty square meters (80m2).  

In such case that the stand is by a SICAB sponsor, said stand has its own system for set up.

Should a stand plan to offer its guests food/beverage samples, remember that according to the current legislation and health-related mandates of Spain, those working as waiters/waitresses must be contracted and registered with the Social Security office as well as having the corresponding food handler license. Failure to comply with such aspects is the sole responsibility of the contracting breeder.   

Remember that it is totally prohibited to have:
a) Sound (PA) systems should there be live music.
b) Security services that hinder or limit access to stands.

Failure to comply with these rules may lead to the immediate dismantling of the stand.
