New Trade Member Benefits at The Game Fair

As Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined his roadmap to recovery, The Game Fair along with all other events was given the green light to run on its planned dates of 23, 24 and 25 July at Ragley Hall.

“Having been in continuous talks with the local authority and Public Health England, we were already very confident, but a public statement such as this is incredibly important,” said James Gower, Managing Director of The Game Fair.

“Exhibitors and visitors have shown their optimism too as trade stand and ticket sales accelerated immediately following the BBC’s live press briefing which confirmed the news that had been earlier announced in Parliament.

BASC has agreed on new benefits for trade members wishing to participate at The Game Fair and with vaccines now anticipated to have reached all adults by July, the 2021 Game Fair is set to be a bumper year.

BASC chief executive Ian Bell said: “The Game Fair has never been more important for our members and trade as a place to socialise, learn, do business, and of course shop!

“There is no doubt that this virus has affected every one of us but now it is time to focus on recovery and look forward to what will undoubtedly be a significant celebration at Ragley Hall this July.”

Trade members can make savings on stand space and other benefits as this year’s event is set to be an important tool for industry recovery.

  • 70% AB and 47% affluent achievers (ACORN)
  • £60 million spend with exhibitors
  • Unique 60:40 male/female split
