    Banco Santander and ANCCE sign a sponsorship agreement for SICAB 2014

    Thus, Santander Bank becomes the major sponsor of the 2014 International PRE Trade Fair

    This year, Banco Santander will install its FORMULA 1 MOTORHOME at SICAB

    This year, and for the first time, Banco Santander (Bank) will be the main sponsor of SICAB 2014, the International PRE Trade Fair, which will begin on December 2 in the city of Sevilla. The Bank will be providing ample coverage at the event, with a number of activities, including the Formula 1 Motorhome Santander. With this, visitors may evaluate their reactions and skill at the driving wheel using the mobile platform that has been equipped with professional simulators. Such equipment allows racers to compete with each other and enjoy the true sensation felt when racing down official tracks as they were real F1 race drivers.

    The sponsorship agreement between ANCCE as the organizers of SICAB and Banco Santander was signed by Alberto Delgado, the Regional Manager for Banco Santander in Andalusia and Juan Tirado, the President of ANCCE, at the Yanduri Palace, where the bank’s regional offices are housed in Sevilla.


    According to Alberto Delgado, the agreement with ANCCE translates into ‟decisive support by Banco Santander in favor of the most important horse fair in the world.” He underlined the firm’s “strong commitment with SICAB, ANCCE and all breeders of Purebred Spanish Horses. Undoubtedly, the first commitment is SICAB, an event that reinforces the social and economic life of Sevilla, in which we sought to participate as sponsors because of what is means for the city.”

    Likewise, the President of ANCCE, Juan Tirado, expressed his appreciation and insisted on the importance of having the sponsorship of a private investor as is the case of Banco Santander. This bank has a strong reputation in Spain, and seeks to promote outstanding events that generate benefits for the city of Sevilla, and Spain in general. Tirado concluded by expressing his desire that both organizations continue to collaborate over time, to expand their ties well beyond the scope of SICAB.

    SICAB is the third most important social and economic event held in Sevilla—just behind Easter Week and the April Fair—thus making it the most important equine event dedicated exclusively to the Purebred Spanish Horse. Every year, more than 200,000 people come to the city to see the more than 1000 PRE horses.

    The economic support of the many SICAB sponsors is a guarantee for Success, as it helps cover the investment necessary to prepare the Fair Grounds for the various competitions and exhibition areas.
