Balppa’s second Excellence Awards rounded off a hugely successful year for the British leisure industry.

Following on from the event’s inaugural iteration the 2018 awards were bigger and better than ever with more categories that previous and of course in turn, more winners.

The morning saw a packed day of education and networking events at the Drayton Manor hotel on 26 November in addition to a mini trade show and seminar programme.

Balppa chief executive Paul Kelly commented: “We were pleased that so many businesses chose to exhibit at the event and that many reported a successful show. The feedback from visitors was also extremely positive. We hope that we helped to cement some strong relationships between suppliers and operators.”

Award winners included Safari MK, which came out top in the attraction over 12,000 sq ft category, Craftis was announced as supplier of the year and Colchester Group got the gold in regards to digital communication.

Throughout the course of the day more than £1,200 was raised for Autism Puzzles, Balppa’s chosen charity partner for the awards.
