EquiMania! wins accolades for Minnesota State Fair exhibit

Posted: January 27, 2014

A trade show partnership between Equine Guelph and the Minnesota State Fair was awarded two Awards of Excellence at the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE) convention in Las Vegas. 

EquiMania! is an interactive youth education program and exhibition designed to teach kids about horse health and safety.  Last year, the two partners joined forces to replicate the original EquiMania! exhibit for the Minnesota State Fair.

“We were absolutely thrilled to work with the Minnesota State Fair to replicate our original EquiMania! exhibit,” says Gayle Ecker, director of Equine Guelph.  “It will be great to share the fun, interactive display with youth as well as introduce our online education program to adults in the coming years.’

EquiMania! is available for other events in North America.  Contacteq4kids@uoguelph.ca for more information.
