At the heart of the sports and play industry, the FSPA is a Trade Challenge Partner of the Department for International Trade (DiT). This means that we work closely with them to support our members in their exporting activities. Whether you’re just starting your exporting journey or you’re looking to expand further, we can help.
We administer the DiT’s Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) which provides grants, support and expert advice for businesses wanting to attend overseas trade shows. We also organise, promote and front dedicated UK exhibiting areas for our members at the sports industry show ISPO in Munich and the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando for the golf sector.
For more information about exporting and how we can help please call a member of the team on 02476 414999, email us or download the following guides:
It’s great to be part of an organisation that campaigns for investment in children’s play facilities and which raises the standards of the entire industry.
Having the support of the FSPA behind us is tremendously beneficial and greatly enhances the offering to our membership.
I have been a member of SPE for many years now and every member shows a 100% commitment to promote participation in sport and play in the UK.
It’s sometimes difficult to get heard when you stand on your own. But when you're part of a respected body like the FSPA, people listen and things start to happen.
The opportunity to meet with like-minded people across our sector to discuss some of the challenges is always invaluable.
Working together as a group of companies creates a stronger voice for the play industry, which benefits both suppliers and customers.
