The aim of the Showcase is to raise awareness of New Zealand's equine breeding industry. It is a hub from which studs, breed societies, equine reproduction specialists and foaling services – and everything in between – can promote themselves. A place to meet, greet and network with others interested, involved or dabbling in the breeding industry.

The Showcase will be situated in the entrance marquee to the Premier Arena at the southern end of the grandstand. It will be signposted, listed in HOY publications and mentioned over the broadcasting system during the show. A site booklet will list all participants in the Parade and Showcase site and be available to marquee visitors and parade viewers.

Showcase displays can be static or dynamic, with power available for visual displays. We offer advertising space from an A4 poster on the noticeboard to metres as required. Opportunities extend to advertising in HOY publications, over broadcasting systems and on the big screen.

Displays can be assembled and pamphlet, brochure or business card stocks refreshed in your absence.
