NY August 26, 2003 When guests arrive at the VIP Tent
at the 28th Hampton Classic Horse Show, they will be treated to
a stunning sample of the Hampton Conservatories handiwork.
enclosed glass structure featuring a fireplace and decorated with
fine furniture, including a white baby grand piano, the conservatory
is on display throughout the Classic, running until Sunday, August
year was our first year with the Hampton Classic, explained
Russ Ireland, Jr. of Hampton Conservatories. We had been here
before as guests, and we contacted Tony Hitchcock (Executive Director
of the Hampton Classic Horse Show) about getting involved. Tony
felt the Hampton Classic would like to have a feature for the entrance
of the VIP tent and we thought we could accomplish that.
is a fairly new business for us, but we were getting more and more
inquiries from eastern Long Island, so we thought it would be great
to showcase our product at the Hampton Classic, continued
Ireland. We didnt have any expectations or anticipations
in terms of sales, we simply wanted to introduce our product and
let people know what is available in terms of enhancing their lifestyle
and living environment.
in 1997, Hampton Conservatories, who also produce solariums, pool
enclosures and greenhouses, is enjoying its second year of sponsorship
at the Hampton Classic Horse Show.
love being part of the Classic, we love that the show benefits the
Southampton Hospital, and we hope that we bring something special
to the show itself, explains Ireland.
