Kentucky Horse Park and Alltech continue long-time partnership and renew naming rights for Alltech Arena
The Kentucky Horse Park and Alltech are delighted to continue their long-standing partnership and have renewed their naming rights agreement, securing the designation of Alltech Arena for an additional five years. The sponsorship is a continuation of a landmark partnership for both parties. The Kentucky Horse Park is widely known as the state’s leading tourist attraction, one of Kentucky’s largest working horse farms, and one of the nation’s leading competition facilities, serving nearly one million visitors annually.
The Horse Park and Alltech have teamed up to host nationally and regionally significant events in Kentucky for decades. Alltech Arena has hosted many major equine and non-equine gatherings, such as the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010, Alltech National Horse Show, Road to the Horse and Kentucky Crafted, among others.
“Our partnership with Alltech has spanned multiple decades, and we are excited they will continue to have a major presence at the Kentucky Horse Park for years to come,” said Lee Carter, executive director of the Kentucky Horse Park. “Alltech is committed to making positive, sustainable impacts throughout their diverse business channels. The company’s continued support of the Kentucky Horse Park allows us to maintain our position within the equine industry while also enhancing the overall quality of life in the commonwealth.”
“As a long serving board member of the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, our commitment to the Horse Park is monumental in moving forward our relationship in the equine industry and the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” said Deirdre Lyons, co-founder and director of corporate design, image and construction at Alltech.
“From the striking sunset at the Opening Ceremonies to the spellbinding Gold Medal dressage win of Edward Gal and Totillas at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010, few fans will ever forget when the world championships of equestrian sport found a home in Kentucky,” said Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech. “For Alltech, our partnership with the Kentucky Horse Park on the Alltech Arena is a commemoration of the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s shining moment on the world stage in 2010 and an ongoing commitment to celebrating the bond between humanity and horses.”
Alltech Arena has a total permanent seating capacity of 5,512, including nine VIP Suites. It contains a full event concourse suitable for trade shows and vendors and six separate concession areas, along with a multi-speaker sound system with delayed distribution. The arena is ADA-compliant, with accessible seating and companion seating.
