LEADING international industry players will attend the International Thoroughbred Breeders Federation meeting in Cape Town in January 2017.

The International Thoroughbred Breeders Federation is the global body of thoroughbred breeders.

It was founded in 1950 and is growing in stature and influence – as shown when it successfully lobbied to overturn the IATA rule on travel of pregnant mares and is also in the process of gaining observer status at the OIE.

The Federation meet every 18 months and it will be exciting news and a boost for the sport that South Africa will act as a host in the midst of the Cape Summer Of Champions Season.

The conference itself will be over three days including two days of open veterinary forum – Dr Des Leadon is putting together a very exciting programme of topics and speakers, which will be finalised shortly.

It represents an opportunity to meet highly influential people from all over the world and for our own stakeholders and members to network and exchange ideas and information.

There are also opportunities for sponsors to become involved.

Please click on the sponsorship proposal for more information.

Such is the stature of the speakers, the programme, the delegates and international exposure that this event really does offer great rewards for sponsors.

Sponsors will get exposure on the website as well as publicity documents and the souvenir programme.

Depending on the sponsorship option chosen, sponsors will also get exposure at the conference itself, attendance at the conference and inclusion in some social events.

Susan Rowett (susan@varsfontein.co.za) and Dr Bennie van der Merwe (namaquas@intekom.co.za) are happy to field any enquiries – please feel free to drop them a mail.
