BETA International marks its 30th anniversary this year. In 2008, companies from 19 different countries were among the exhibitors while visitors came from 45 countries. Visitor numbers are BETA independently audited by ABC.

New exhibitors for 2009 include French wholesaler Ekkia, distributor of 18,000 equestrian lines to 50 countries. Alongside 20-plus own brands, BETA International visitors can also become acquainted with Equi-Theme, CSO, Eric Thomas, Riding World, Belstar and Hippo-Tonic.
