Best to date….Association of Play Industries..Ray Baxter…Trevor Markham..

The UK’s national playground and safety surface event PLAYFAIR took place at the end of June at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry. Supported by the Association of Play Industries, this two day trade event has been hailed as the best to date.
In its third outing the show’s 45 exhibitors attracted a record attendance of 863 visitors (an increase of 15% on 2009) with a small number also visiting from Europe. Visitors came primarily from the public sector, with parish councils, local authorities and education well represented while around 300 individuals came from businesses within the private sector including landscape architects, leisure centre/facility managers and specialist contractors.
Ray Baxter, event manager, commented, “we’re delighted with the results for PlayFair 2010. Sunny Stoneleigh Park was transformed into a true showcase for manufacturers and suppliers of play equipment and safety surfaces. Visitors came from all over the country with excellent representation from both the public and private sectors.”
Exhibitors are already looking forward to next year’s event. Trevor Markham, managing director at Park Leisure said: "The PlayFair exhibition has extremely high quality trade visitors and is unique in that it’s the only exhibition where children of different age groups are bussed in to try out the equipment in situ. – We have already booked our stand for PlayFair 2011."
Next year, PlayFair will take place at Stoneleigh Park on 21st and 22nd June 2011.
