Alastair Stewart back at BETA International by popular demand

ITV newscaster Alastair Stewart is to return to BETA International, where he will host the 2017 trade fair’s Talking Business feature – an exciting industry debate where the very latest hot topics take centre stage.

“I am delighted to be taking part once again in this premier event for our industry,” he said. “Intelligent conversation is guaranteed from a top-class panel on all that matters to our sport and the brilliant industries that support it.”

Alastair, an equestrian enthusiast who first took the helm when Talking Business put in its inaugural appearance in January 2016, proved a big hit with visitors and exhibitors who gathered to see him oversee industry movers and shakers as they went head-to-head in a meaty discussion that put the latest industry issues in the spotlight.

“We are extremely pleased that Alastair has accepted our invitation to continue in his role as Talking Business host,” said BETA International organiser Claire Thomas. “

We definitely have the right man for the job. He is polished, professional, entertaining and fantastic at ensuring that all members of the panel have the opportunity to express their views. We were incredibly impressed with his performance in January and so was the audience – you could certainly say that Alastair is back by popular demand!”

The Talking Business panel of representatives from the international equestrian business community will be confirmed nearer the time of the show.

BETA International is the world’s leading equestrian, country clothing, outdoor and pet product trade exhibition. The 2017 show takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 22 to 24 January.
