PlayFair 2012 - Celebrating Five Years of Play

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.

The first PlayFair was held in 2008 in order to provide a platform for API members to promote their products directly to communities and schools. It has not taken long for the reputation of PlayFair to grow over the years, with increasing numbers of visitors attending at every show.
As PlayFair is both unique and free to attend it is a very attractive event for local authority staff from different sectors, such as children and youth services, or parks and open spaces teams, as well as parents who are active as school governors or on a local PTA.
Every year, PlayFair features a comprehensive seminar program with several guest speakers who talk on various topics from funding and play design, to community engagement and the value of consultation.
Last year's PlayFair was a high-profile success with the attendance of Olympic gold medallist, Sally Gunnell who gave an inspiring talk on the need for the government and communities to embrace active play as a pathway to sport in order to meet the London 2012 legacy targets.
This year's PlayFair is already on-track to be the biggest show yet with a high level of sign-up from API members and strong numbers of visitors already pre-registered. An impressive show of support from both the play sector and local authorities, in spite of the difficult economic times, both for the play industry and communities at large.
Held on the 19-20 June at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, PlayFair 2012 is free to attend for all landscape, play and leisure industry professionals. Looking forward, PlayFair 2013 will be held on 18-19 June - we hope to see you then as well!
