EquisFair, the Walloon equestrian cluster, and Hippolia, the competitiveness cluster dedicated to the French equine industry, renew their international collaborative partnership in the equine sector
[Vielsalm, Belgium, 5 October 2023] - EquisFair, the Walloon equestrian cluster, and Hippolia, the competitiveness cluster dedicated to the French equine industry, are proud to announce the renewal of their strategic partnership aimed at strengthening international cooperation and promoting excellence within the equine industry
EquisFair, based in Wallonia, Belgium, is the equestrian cluster that works to stimulate the growth and competitiveness of the equine industry. Hippolia, located in the heart of the Normandy region in France, is a centre of excellence that promotes innovation, research and development in the equine field. The two organisations therefore represent the entire equine industry through their members, and act as a point of reference for local authorities and government departments. The services offered by the respective bodies provide the coordination, communication, viability, development, knowledge and skills needed to drive the industry forward.
The aim of this partnership is therefore to create synergies between the two regions by combining the image and expertise of these two organisations in order to raise the profile of the equine community on an international scale.
This partnership between Hippolia and EquisFair, which was renewed on 21 September at the Normandy Horse Meetup, demonstrates the ongoing commitment to the equine industry and the desire to strengthen the position of Wallonia and Normandy as centres of equine excellence on an international scale.
