After two hugely successful editions, EEM, the organizers behind the GUCCI MASTERS, once again invite equestrian fans to the exhibition centre at Paris Nord Villepinte (Hall 5b), from December 2nd to 4th 2011 during the Paris Horse Show.

Each year, the GUCCI MASTERS attracts show jumping aficionados and novices alike, and the 2011 edition will offer a chance to see some of the very best exponents of the discipline, including Canada's Eric Lamaze, current world n°1 and reigning Olympic champion, France's Kevin Staut, world n°2 and vice-world team champion, Belgium's Philippe Le Jeune, reigning world champion and Australia's Edwina Alexander the world's current number one female professional show jumper and ambassadress for Gucci, to name just a few of the star names set to appear.

Taking to the same course, in different types of events, will be experienced riders and intrepid amateurs, as they attempt to top the leader board.

Over the three days of the meeting, some 50,000 spectators are expected to watch the top level sporting contests, admire the competitors as they train in the paddock, or take advantage of the occasion to do a little shopping in the Prestige Village.

With a purse of €800,000, the 2011 GUCCI MASTERS once again promises a fantastic show, with unforgettable highs in a unique and highly prestigious setting worthy of the luxury fashion house GUCCI, title sponsor of the event.

IMG Worldwide, the global sports, fashion and media company provides general consulting services to the EEM and will be very involved in organizing and staging the Paris event.
