Free coach service to BETA International

BETA International’s popular free coaches are back for 2013 with an extended service for transporting visitors to the show. The new arrangement will see additional coaches leaving Norwich, Ipswich, Peterborough and London, joining those travelling from Exeter and Carlisle.


The luxury, 25-seater vehicles from The Anderson Travel Group and CoachMarque will leave early on Sunday morning, stopping off at collection points en route to the NEC, Birmingham. An extra coach will travel from Exeter on Monday, providing an additional opportunity for a day visit to the show, as well as collecting retailers who have been passengers on the previous day.

“It is extremely important that BETA International is a positive experience for all concerned,” said Claire Thomas, commercial manager of Equestrian Management Consultants (EMC), organiser of the trade fair. “Putting on a free coach service shows how much we value our visitors and, by introducing additional collection points from different parts of the country, we are responding to increasing demand.”

As interest in seats is expected to be high, reservations should be made as soon as possible, by logging on to www.beta-int.com. Go to Visit in the menu bar and select Free Coach Service, before clicking on the link indicated to make a booking. Please see timetable below. 


All passengers will receive a complimentary goody bag from main sponsor Virbac Animal Health. For further information about the service, contact trade fair manager Lynn Pattison, telephone 01937 582111 or email tradefair@beta-int.com.


BETA International is the leading trade fair for the equestrian, pet products and country clothing markets. The 2013 show will take place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 17 to 19 February.

All coaches will leave the NEC, Birmingham, at 5.30pm.
