1. Project Planners

The Family Attraction Expo is sure to provide you with the inspiration for your new business venture, exposing you to the latest trends and customer experiences worth getting involved in. That said, the next step will be planning the project to make sure it’s all practically possible, and will suit your attractions needs.

The show will be welcoming a number of companies who could shine a light on this all-important aspect of a new venture creation. For example, Evan Jones Ltd., at stand FM1954, are the ideal choice for project management, building surveys, and even disabled access audits. This way, you can ensure you get the correct planning permission and regulations sorted before anything else happens.

2. Finance Experts

The next step will be in figuring out the ins and outs of how much this new venture may cost, whether it’ll bring enough profit in, and so on. We have a number of partners and exhibitors, who you’ll be able to meet at our exhibition face-to-face, to help you out in this regard.

For example, our exhibitor, Lorica Insurance Brokers, specialises in insurance within the leisure industry, making sure your company is protected in every way against potential pitfalls. We also have a number of partners, some whose websites are extremely informative in this field. For example, check out Indoor Play Magazine for some great information about what to remember in terms of finances and insurance.

Someone working out their finances will need a pen, paper, and calculator, or a professional to help them out

3. Marketing, PR, and Advertisement

Once you’ve planned the idea and made sure it’s a profitable venture, you also need to think about the best ways to get this new idea into the public eye. This will come from hiring a marketer and PR specialist, as well as calling on publishers to provide press releases for advertisement purposes.

At the Family Attraction Expo, you’ll get the chance to meet with Essential Marketer, at stand FM1851, who specialise in web design and SEO. This means that you’ll end up with a beautiful website or webpage to show off your new venture, optimised in a way so it appears in Google searches and gains traction.

We also work alongside our array of media partners, including Theme Parks UK, Ride Rater and Coinslot International, who are experts in keeping their readers up-to-date with industry topics. By getting in touch with them, you’ll be able to publicise to the masses!

4. Structures and Equipment

It’s also paramount that you meet people who can allow your idea to come to life. If this comes in the form of a structure, like a building or ride, then we have just the solution. Our exhibitors, including Infinite Playgrounds, HFN Landscapes, and The Sign Maker, offer a myriad of services. Specifically, these companies provide beautiful playgrounds, landscaping services, and fantastic quality signs, respectively.

These are just a couple of the hundreds of exhibitors you’ll get to network with at the show. So, from the smallest consideration like a sign, to the bigger factors like buildings, there’ll be a contact for everything.

5. Technological Interfaces

Lastly, once everything else is done-and-dusted, you’ll need to think about the finishing touches. These little, all-important extras will come in the form of technology and systems for the final flourish.

Namely, NotLost specialise in providing innovative technology to improve the lost property service, saving time, and increasing customer satisfaction in the process. What's more, Integrex Ltd. focuses on educational interfaces and technologies for children, which are ideal for an activity centre or museum, and Osborne Technologies Limited and Roto VR provide immersive customer experiences, ideal for the attraction sector. Finally, Vennersys Ltd. provides the perfect ticketing administration systems for keeping your company in the 21st century!
