As a BALPPA Member, you will belong to a group of like minded operators from all sectors of the Leisure Industry, including theme parks, animal attractions and family entertainment centres. Running similar businesses, we often find Members share common challenges and issues. As a BALPPA Member, you’ll have access to the named contacts for all operating Members, be able to meet fellow operators at numerous events and be able to ask the BALPPA Secretariat if you’d like a personal introduction.
BALPPA is the voice of the Leisure, Park, Pier, Attraction and Indoor / Soft Play industry. Members can liaise directly with Industry Sub Groups and those involved in lobbying.
We all hope that our Members will never have any major disasters, however, should they occur you can feel rest assured knowing BALPPA is in your corner. Whether this is providing advice directly or putting you in touch with operators who have had similar issues, BALPPA will do everything to help.
Sharing knowledge and finding out best practice is a major advantage to being a BALPPA Member. If you want to find out how others in the industry solve their challenges, just ask the BALPPA team. They will either help you directly or put you in touch with a Member who can.
Have a legal issue? Every year, you can take advantage of our free advice legal, planning and accounting helplines.
Throughout the year, BALPPA organises workshop and forums to extend your knowledge base within your business. Bringing in industry specialists, your team will obtain the latest skills they need.
