VIP Experience Awaits Sponsors and Exhibitors at Showplace Spring Spectacular

Wayne, IL - June 1, 2009 - The Showplace Spring Spectacular Horse Show starts on Tuesday, June 2, and runs two weeks through Sunday, June 14. During that time, there will be numerous opportunities for exhibitors and others to enjoy what Showplace Productions has arranged. With numerous exhibitor parties and the opportunity to purchase VIP tables at the grand prix ring, everyone can have the benefit of one of the nation's best horse show experiences. Sponsors are also a vital part of the horse show and will be a major part of all of the trophy presentations that are arranged over the next two weeks.

Held at the scenic Lamplight Equestrian Center, the Showplace Spring Spectacular offers a full range of divisions for hunters, jumpers, and equitation. More than $350,000 in prize money will be awarded over the two weeks of competition, including more than $200,000 in the second week alone. The two highlight classes of the competition are the $30,000 and $50,000 grand prix events, held on each Saturday afternoon. There is also the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby sponsored by Woodrun, which will test the top hunters of professional, amateur, and junior riders, on Tuesday, June 9.

Showplace Productions manager Pat Boyle makes sponsors feel like they are an integral part of the competition. "It is important to recognize the wonderful sponsors and supporters- individual, family, and corporate- of Showplace Productions and their significant contributions this year. Many of our past corporate sponsors have been lost to mergers or are struggling with the viability of their own businesses. Our local supporters have stepped in to fill that void and enabled us to offer the same exact prize money, as in years past," he said.

Showplace Productions is the producer of the largest horse shows in the Midwest and offers an opportunity to build quality relationships with businesses and organizations. Sponsors' names and logos are viewed in many ways through their association with the Showplace Spring Spectacular, including magazine advertising, news coverage, web site views, spectator attendance, and prize lists. Sponsors are recognized through a myriad of different ways at the show, including in public address announcements, ringside banners, and in awards presentations.

"Through our sponsors' continued and even increased support, we have been able to keep this signature competition as strong as ever," Boyle went on to say. "It is the dedication of everyone involved that enables Showplace Productions to continue to be the front-runner of horse shows in the Midwest. We take that very seriously here and will continue to produce the best all-around product for everyone's enjoyment."

Sponsors are a very special part of the Showplace Spring Spectacular Horse Show, and they are welcome to enjoy the competition in comfort. Tables under the VIP tent are available and offer brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

For those who would like to have a VIP experience at the Showplace Spring Spectacular, tables are still available for $600 per week. At a table that seats eight, guests will be served lunch on Saturday and Sunday and will have a ringside seat to competition.
