We think we've brought together an amazing group of people; for us community and experience are absolutely why we do what we do.

British Polo Day began in Dubai in 2009 with the aim of creating an invitation only global platform to build relationships with some of the world’s most dynamic and most interesting individuals, through distinct experiences hosted in iconic destinations.


There have now been 79 British Polo Days in 16 countries spread over 5 continents, with a Partner base that remains characterised by best in class across the board and one that now represents over 2,000 years of heritage cumulatively.


In the process, over $2.7mUSD has been raised so far for good causes.


The events themselves continue to bring fascinating people into the fold and this is increasingly now sparking wider interactions that span a range of passion points and opportunities for BPD’s parent company Britannia Elevation and the wider community.


“If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change.”

– The Leopard, by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa


This famous line, from a perennial favourite book, neatly defines the paradox inherent in how British Polo Day maintains – and hopefully improves upon – charm & allure year-on-year.


Networking is turning up at a picnic with a knife & fork, relationship building is turning up with a coronation chicken. BPD was founded to contribute and this has remained foremost ever since. Everything else follows on from this.


Ben Vestey, CEO & Co-Partner


Not everything that is meaningful can be measured.
