LIW11 - general crowd shot

Up to 7,000 leisure professionals from across the country are expected to visit LIW at the Birmingham NEC.

Autumn is shaping up to be a busy season for the holiday park industry, with not one but three not-to-be-missed trade shows in the pipeline.

The popular Leisure Industry Week (LIW) will return to Birmingham’s NEC and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

Up to 7,000 leisure industry professionals are expected to visit the three day show from 30th September to 2nd October, spanning across six core sectors including Pool & Spa, Play, Health & Fitness, Eat & Drink, Leisure Facilities and Sport.

New for this year is the hotly anticipated Pool & Spa Advice Clinic, providing a comprehensive swimming pool and spa information centre at stand W440. Representatives from four of the industry’s leading pool and spa companies will be on hand to offer advice on all aspects of design, installation and maintenance. From planning a new pool to refurbishing an old one, or deciding which wellness options will generate the most revenue, the panel of industry experts have got it covered.


The Landscape show features contemporary, cutting edge technologies and methods, and is supported by a comprehensive free seminar programme.


Next up is the well-established Landscape show, which focuses on the design, build and maintenance of indoor and outdoor landscaping projects.

Visitors to the show at Battersea Park will have the opportunity to view cutting edge products and technologies geared towards improving their property, including hot tubs, paving options, specimen trees and planting, containers and decking. The Holiday Park Scene team will also be in attendance on stand A37 – stop by to pick up your free copy of the magazine and discuss how you can get involved in future issues.

The show will be open to the public from 10am – 6pm on Tuesday 23rd September, and 10am – 5pm on Wednesday 24th September. Tickets are free of charge and available by registering on the website.


If you’re looking for new ideas for your camping or caravanning business, be sure to visit the Farm Business Innovation exhibition and conference when it returns to Olympia London on 27th-28th November.

Don’t let the name fool you – you don’t need to be a farmer to benefit from a day at the show. The combination of suppliers, seminars and workshops covers a range of ideas that any forward-thinking camping or caravanning business owner will find invaluable in maximising the revenue potential of their business.

The schedule of seminar and workshop topics includes tourism, glamping, retail and marketing, with expert advice on how to identify the opportunities that are right for your business.
