As is customary this time of year, preparations are underway for SICAB to become the best showcase for the Purebred Spanish Horse. This newsletter provides you with basic information about the event.
SICAB 2013 will be held between the 3rd and 8th of December.
Once again, we have an agreement with the El Corte Inglés travel agency to handle all SICAB hotel reservations. The travel agency contact phone is +34-954-254-718.
STUD FARM CATALOG
Annually, SICAB prepares an official catalog where all those stud farms who so desire may contract publicity. Tuesday, the fifth of November is the deadline to request the inclusion of publicity and to send in the original text/photos. Included herein is the request form for Catalog publicity; please fill out the form and send it back to the ANCCE office. This request form indicates the current fees for publicity this year.
Remember, there is limited publicity space. If you are interested, it is best to reserve now!
This year, the location of breeders’ stands will be in Pavilion 1, the same as last year, where there will also be an arena for mares.
Those breeders who send in their stand reservation before August 31 will be able to select the location where they want their stand. Nevertheless, stand location is based on order of arrival, but always respecting seniority and previous locations.
The deadline for contracting a stand is the 30th of October 2013. To formalize your reservation, you must fill out the form—included herein—and make the corresponding €600 deposit.
As of August 31, all other reservations will be accepted from breeders who did not participate in SICAB 2012, but following strict order of arrival. Likewise, the reservation is considered processed as of the date that the €600 deposit has been made.
The amount deposited formalizes the reservation. In all cases, the deposit should be made to the ANCCE at La Caixa (Bank) with account number 2100 2320 55 0200168822 (SWIFT Code: CAIXESBBXXX and Iban code: ES98-2100-2320-5502-00168822). Remember, should there be a cancellation after the October 30, 2013 deadline, the organizers will not return this deposit.
All specifications for setting up stands, schedules and general use are specified in the Breeder Stand Contract, which will be sent in due course. The prices for Full Members are the same as in 2012. Two-floor stands are not allowed, nor any stand that is raised off the floor. We understand that breeders will be using videos, music or musical shows at their stand; therefore, a fee of €100 will be charged by the SGAE (Copyright Authority) for each stand.
