BETA Business Finalists Revealed


The finalists in the 2018 BETA Business Awards – leading B2B accolades to reward and recognise companies and individuals making a significant difference to the equestrian industry – have been announced.

“To make it through to the final stages of the awards is an accomplishment in itself,” said British Equestrian Trade Association executive director Claire Williams. “The standard of nominees is always extremely high and selecting the final few is a tremendous challenge. We wish all our finalists the very best of luck as we continue the search for those who will go on to win one of these highly prized awards. Depending on the category involved, this will include member votes, secret shoppers, incognito calls and consideration by an independent panel.”
