BALPPA recently held it’s inaugural FEC Excellence Awards which took place on Monday 27th November at Drayton Manor Hotel.
This event celebrated excellence within the leisure industry for FEC and Indoor Play operators, providing an opportunity for BALPPA Members and non-Members to nominate others or self nominate their business across seven categories of awards.
We were delighted to have Teddy Mountain as Gold Sponsor of the FEC Excellence Awards and Leisure, FEC and Indoor Play Trade Exhibition and thank them for their generosity.
We are also grateful to our other event/award sponsors for their support and generosity
