Tradestand Policy

for Information

The 2021 event has been cancelled. We will be accepting further applications for tradestand space for 2022 during the summer of 2021. In the meantime the website will be amended with news updates over the coming months.

The following is for information only:

  1. The area available for Tradestands will not be expanded to any marked degree in the near future.
  2. No stand may sell or display at the event or via Badminton Horse Trials and article competitive with: Rolex Watches, Wadworth Beers, Nyetimber, Thatchers or any other item Badminton Horse Trials stipulates.
  3. Brands that do not normally sell direct to the public may not do so at Badminton. Such brands may apply for a “Display Only” stand.
  4. No exhibitor may sub-let or share occupation of the whole or any part of the space allotted to any other exhibitor, manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer.
  5. A wide mix of trades will be encouraged, which means that the number of exhibitors in similar businesses will be limited.
  6. When any space becomes available, preference will be given to stands that offer an extension of the range of goods on sale or exhibition and that are professionally and attractively set up.
  7. All retailers are required to exhibit a reasonably full selection of any brands that they stock in the normal course of their business at fixed premises or online.
  8. Length of time on the “waiting list” is not the major factor in allocating space, though it may be taken into account.
  9. If an applicant already occupies a site within one of the multi stands (e.g. Rural Crafts Association, Country Collection, World of the Horse, Country Living etc.) this would have to be relinquished if allocated an individual site by Badminton Horse Trials, i.e. no exhibitor may occupy more than one site of any kind.
  10. Every effort will be made to maintain and enhance the image of Badminton as a place where high quality goods and services are provided.
  11. Rent for space may increase annually and will reflect demand.
  12. Existing stands will be assessed on these criteria, so that not all existing exhibitors will necessarily be invited in the future.
  13. Exhibitors wishing to sell food and / or drink will not normally be allocated an individual site. If you require further details, please see Food & Drink Applications.
