Kevin Staut_at_WEG_Kentucky_October_2010November 17 – A record eight countries have put themselves forward to host the 2018 World Equestrian Games, it has been announced.

Australia, Austria, Canada, Hungary, Morocco, Russia, Sweden and the United States all submitted official expressions of interest by the time the deadline set by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) expired at midnight on Tuesday (November 15). 

“It also shows the value of the review that the FEI has commissioned of the bidding process for the FEI World Equestrian Games and FEI European Championships, which is aimed at raising the profile of these events and their associated revenues by creating a competitive, well structured and transparent bid process,” said Ingmar de Vos, the secretary general of the FEI.

The event includes eight of the FEI’s ten disciplines: combined driving, dressage, endurance riding, eventing, paraequestrianism, reining, show jumping, and vaulting.

A decision will be announced after the FEI Spring Bureau meeting in early 2013 as the third and final phase in the new bidding process that the FEI has put in place for the FEI World Equestrian Games and FEI European Championships.

Under the new process, the key deadlines can be broken down into three phases, the applicant phase, the candidate phase and the decision phase.

The first phase has already begun with deadline for receipt of expressions of interest.

This phase will continue with guide and applicant questionnaire, which will be sent to applicants in March 2012.

The candidate phase is due to begin on April  30, 2012, with the deadline for receipt of the applicant questionnaire.

An FEI World Equestrian Games 2018 presentation will be made to candidates at FEI headquarters in Lausanne in June 2012, when legal cocumentation will also be given to candidates.

Completed document, including a signed host agreement, must be submitted to the FEI by December 15, 2012.

Candidates will formally present their bids to the FEI in February 2013, prior to the official announcement of the host organisers after the Spring Bureau meeting in 2013.

The Games were first held in Stockholm in 1990 and have since been held in The Hague in 1994, Rome in 1998, Jerez in 2002, Aachen in 2006 and last year in Lexington in Kentucky, the first time the event has been held outside Europe and where competitors from 58 countries took part.

The 2014 Games are due to be held in Normandy in France.

About Tori Gable

Prior to Real Estate I held a position at Bank of America in Private Banking as a Senior Relationship Associate and Fiduciary Specialist. Due to my exposure with high-net worth individual and the experience of the procedures of Trust accounts I am now the 1st contact for many Private Client Service Managers and the sale of properties held in trust. In addition to my experience managing many trust accounts for Bank of America, I was responsible for managing an array of products for our clients including mortgages and money management. My wide base of knowledge provides me the ability to manage my client’s entire transaction and allows me to excel in my chosen profession of Real Estate. I began my Real Estate Career by partnering with one of the biggest brokers in Beverly Hills – June Scott http://junescott.com/. Her reputation, knowledge, and experience were unsurpassed. Our client base was the elite of Hollywood, many producers, celebrities, and business managers. I was with June at Coldwell Banker for the 1st year of my career, while honing my own skills I was able to learn from one of the best in the industry again adding to my ability to manage my client’s entire transaction. After working with June Scott I partnered up with Jade Mills as a buyers agent http://jademills.com/. Jade being another legendary broker in Beverly Hills gave me the edge I needed to gain wide exposure. This experience also gave me the exposure to the multi-million dollar Real Estate market, as our average listing was upwards of $4MM. The list of power house brokers I am associated with opens many doors in this business for me, in addition to gaining instant respect from not only new brokers but brokers that have been in the business for 20 or more years. This business is about relationships, not only with your client base but with your peer group. Earning the respect and recognition of my associates has allowed me to be extremely successful and provide top notch service to my clients. Currently I am with Prudential California Realty in the PacificDesignCenter. I have partnered with two agents that are in the top 3% off all Prudential agents nationwide. Collectively we have over 25 years of experience, are managing an average of 5-8 listings per month, and are working with numerous buyer clients. By joining forces we expanded our advertising budget and ability to handle all of our clients needs.
