    General Information for SICAB 2016

    Once again, I am contacting you with information regarding a number of aspects regarding SICAB 2016, the International PRE Trade Fair and home of the 2nd World PRE Horse Championship.

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

    The 26th edition of SICAB will be held from the 15th to the 20th of November at the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones (Fair Grounds and Convention Center) in Sevilla.

    ANCCE has once again signed an agreement with the El Corte Inglés travel agency to handle all hotel reservations during SICAB. Included herein is the Official Hotel Reservation Form, with the names of the various hotels offered and the corresponding price list.  The travel agent’s phone number is +34 954 254 718.

    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 15. 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 15th 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 Thursday, 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.

    Last year, breeders were offered the possibility of reserving box seats in the stands around the arena in Pavilion 1, which included a table and six chairs as well as catering.  The fee for the best locations, for the entire week of SICAB is €850 (+10% VAT). This price is for full-fledges members of ANCCE.  Depending on availability, this option may be offered to non-members of ANCCE at the rate of one thousand, five hundred euros (€1500) (+10% VAT).

    If you had a box seat last year, the deadline to renew your reservation is Thursday, the 15th of September. Also, you may reserve the same location you had in 2015. To formalize your reservation, 50% of the fee must be paid in advance.  After the aforementioned date, requests will be attended on a first-come-first-serve basis. You may reserve one box seat per stud farm; after the deadline, should space still be available, more than one box seat may be contracted.

    To select box seating location, order will be based on the payment date.

    Accessing the box seat with food and beverage from outside is strictly forbidden.

    Likewise, you may also enter your horses for SICAB 2016 by going to the Private Zone of the PRE Stud Book web site at www.lgancce.com  

    Access using your user name and password.  There you will see you stud farm data, invoicing info, a list of all horses registered in the PRE Stud Book with their corresponding information. All you need to do is click to select the horse or horses participating in SICAB.  There is a field for Observations where you may indicate any relevant information, such as horses that are not registered in your name and that you would like to present, etc.  Finally, you may reserve a tack room or shed.  

    As was the case last year, breeders may decide between a pen or a stall for their mares.  The number of stalls is limited, so, if you are interested, please specify this on your entry form.  Requests for stalls will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, with preference being given to Full-Fledged Members and until all stalls have been designated.
    Entries and registrations will be considered confirmed once full payment has been made. Once this payment has been made, said amount will not be returned, whatever the circumstance.  The organizers calculate supply needs using the actual number of horses entered as the basis when calculating provisions.

    If you are interested in reserving a tack room, it will cost €200 for full-fledged members and €300 for all others participants. Remember that this year, occupancy is subject to availability and that that the organizers are not responsible for theft or robbery.  

    To safeguard such incidence, we remind breeders that tack rooms (construction sheds) with lock and key are available.  These sheds may be shared; the rental fee for full-fledged members is €400 and €500 for all other participants.  Portable lighting is available for the construction sheds; this may be obtained by paying a €25 deposit, which will be reimburses once the equipment has been returned.  
    To enter a horse, reserve a stand, receive breeder documentation or participate in SICAB 2016 in any way, you must be in good standing regarding all economic obligations with ANCCE.
