    SICAB concludes with the PRE & Pura Raza awards for Cayetano Martínez de Irujo & Ainhoa Arteta

    Online sales increased 40% over last year

    Once again, SICAB welcomed more than 200,000 visitors

    The 26th edition of the International Purebred Spanish Horse Trade Fair—SICAB 2016—organized by the National PRE Breeders’ Association (ANCCE) has surpassed all expectations, with more than 200,000 visitors. As has been the case at previous editions, Thursday to Sunday saw the largest crowds. SICAB closed its gates today at 7:00 pm.

    This year, www.sicabentradas.com, the box office sales platform, proved to be the preferred method when purchasing tickets. Online sales increased by 40% compared to 2015 statistics. When attending the trade fair and in an effort to avoid waiting in line, more and more people prefer online advance ticket purchases.

    At SICAB, there were 1069 participating Purebred Spanish Horses from 342 stud farms. Most outstanding were the many international stud farms that travelled to Sevilla for the venue. The organizers welcomed delegations and breeders from the United States, Mexico, Cost Rica, Colombia, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Switzerland, to mention a few; this means that 15% of all participants were internationals. Moreover, more than 330 journalists from a wide range of nationalities registered for SICAB to provide world-wide coverage.

    www.sicab.tv broadcast all of the various equestrian competitions live; more than 389,292 viewers from over 92 countries connected to watch the many events.
