Sponsorship opportunities still available!

Due to the unprecedented demand for Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorship by previous sponsors, the organising committee of the BAS National Show have made available a number of promotional pens in Hall 2 to enable exhibitors to have the opportunity to promote their herd and business. Exhibitors will have similar benefits as a Bronze Sponsorship – a 2.4m x 2.4m promotional pen in Hall 2 with their animals penned behind, a half A5 page landscape advert in the show catalogue and a listing on the BAS National Show website with a link to their own site. Power socket is not included. The cost of this package is only £250 plus VAT.
This is a fantastic new opportunity for members to get involved in promoting their alpacas at the showcase event of the year.

There are also a number of other sponsorship and advertising opportunities available and bespoke packages can be arranged.
