The equestrian event Faszination Pferd cannot be held this year. The framework conditions ensure an enormous amount of organization and the legal basis currently complex for this type of event does not allow the fascination of horse again this year. In addition to the sales exhibition, the focus is on the tournament and the show programs at Faszination Pferd and shape the face of the event. The entirety of this event cannot be depicted this year, so the next fascination horse will not take place until autumn 2022.
Nuremberg – The fascination horse is not a classic fair but a 24-hour event in which the daily show programs and sporting tournaments are the focus. Project manager Michaela Born was very much looking forward to seeing you again: “After a year without horse fascination, the anticipation was great among everyone involved. That’s why the decision hurts all the more. But the fascination of horse could only be depicted in parts this year. This would not meet our demands on the event and must therefore put our loyal partners, participants, fans and companions off until next year.”
The managing directors of the trade fair organizer AFAG, Henning and Thilo Könicke, regret that the equestrian event must be cancelled again: “This is not an easy step for us but currently the ordinance situation is too complex. The fascination of horses consists of many individual areas to which different specifications apply. In a hall you can find the fair here but also riders and horses with sports exams, show programs, tournaments2 and evening events. Different regulations currently apply to the different areas.”
The horses and riders are housed in their own exhibition hall to fascinate horses, so that the horses are always well cared for. Thus, the fascination of horse is 24-hour operation at the exhibition center. Around 250 participants ensure that the equestrian event runs smoothly every year.
While the official requirements for events of various kinds are still inconsistent, trade fair operations in Bavaria have started successfully. The prerequisites for Consumenta are good and around 500 exhibitors are already looking forward to finally being able to exhibit again at a face-to-face fair. For the exhibitors who wanted to present their offers this year at Faszination Pferd, there is the opportunity to participate in the pet fair (5th to 7th November) as part of the Consumenta. The Consumenta will take place this year from the 30th October to 7. November at Messe Nürnberg.
For all fans of the fascination horse, Henning and Thilo Könicke draw attention to autumn 2022, when the fascination horse takes place parallel to the Consumenta again: “We are looking forward to starting again next year with full power and also to restart the fascination of horse.”
