Influence Your Sector

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.

Obtain Help All Year

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.

Free Advice Helplines
